Documenting Business and Technical Requirements

“The course provides a logical framework for efficient document
– Christopher Edwards, Social Development Canada

This two-day course provides a comprehensive writing process specifically applied to those documents that describe business and technical requirements. Such documents have the very particular function of transmitting from the customer to the design community the precise specifications, needs, and business conditions leading to the right product or service.

Participants learn to improve their technical writing skills, while reducing the total time they spend on their requirements documents.

We strongly recommend that participants bring their documentseither completed or in progress—to the training session to allow the immediate application of the course principles to their own work.

A public session of this course has been scheduled for the Ottawa, Canada, area.
