Frequently asked questions

We offer our requirements definition and management course both as an in-person seminar and online instructor-led class. No matter how the class is delivered, we use hands-on activities and student collaboration and discussion to really explore the material and get the most from the class time.

We sometimes offer public classes at pre-scheduled times and places. We also offer private requirements definition and management training classes for your organization’s unique training needs. Because our trainers are also practicing consultants, we often try to schedule classes 6 weeks out. If your needs require more urgent training, please give us a call to discuss.

Our classes and hands-on activities are designed to be readily applicable to people in different kinds of organizations, industries, and roles. But if you need something more customized, let’s talk and figure out what you need and how we can best help.

We are currently not certified PMI or IIBA training partners, but our requirements definition and management class DOES count towards your PDU/CDU requirements. Once the training has been completed, we’ll provide you with the information you need to apply them.

Because our classes are intended to be interactive, we do not offer a self-paced online option at this time. All of our classes are led by professional consultants with years of experience defining and managing requirements for a variety of clients.
