Improving Requirements Gathering
At the February JC PM Meet-Up Angie and Sam will present on the topic of Improving Requirements Gathering. They will discuss the importance of good requirements gathering and the correlation to project success. They will also walk through ideas they have used to improve requirement gathering. Then the discussion will be opened up for attendees to discuss what has worked and not worked for them in the past as well as new ideas to try.

We all know the stories, "Here is your next project. It needs to be done by (insert some date identified before any project planning has been done.)" Project Managers are the navigators between sponsor expectations and the realities of the time and space continuum of the team. So - how do we help our teams succeed? What about using estimation techniques, time management tools for the team and transparent sponsor communication? Bring the tools you like to use and let's help set a course for success.
Bring your lunch and join us!
This annual event is dedicated to thank our chapter members who volunteered throughout 2018. The program will include recognition of each individual's contribution to the chapter. In addition, we will honor the volunteer selected by our chapter leadership to receive the Frank Cox Volunteer of the Year Award, which is awarded to a volunteer that has gone over and above the expected volunteer role. A meal will be served during the program.
We encourage each volunteer to attend, along with other members who want to join us in thanking our chapter's supporters during this lively and fun-filled evening.
