Scope Creep:  Friend or Foe?

Scope creep is often cited as a cause of excess costs, late delivery, dissatisfied customers, frustrated business sponsors, stressed teams, including business analysts! Yet discovering requirements is about gaining an ever-growing understanding of them. So isn’t scope creep to be expected? And what can you do about it?.

Join Mary Gorman to explore effective analysis techniques you can use-- whether you are using traditional or agile development practices-- to holistically define scope while creatively and collaboratively engaging your stakeholders.

Presenter Mary Gorman, a recognized leader in business analysis and requirements, is Vice President of Quality & Delivery at EBG Consulting, Inc.
