Project Requirements Planning
Requirements planning through developing every critical need into structured project scope with clearly defined user stories
Requirements planning is the 'must have' process of all projects. This essential process takes place at the early stage of project. A set of concisely defined requirements with strong linkage to project objectives are the basis in destining a project to a successful outcome.
Driven by overall spread of the business project scope and quantity of stakeholders in the picture, requirements planning could evolve to be extremely time consuming and very difficult to deliver if they have grown to be exceedingly complicated but not really answering the original business goals.
ANP makes use of pragmatic and hybrid application of agile and waterfall techniques to bring needs into specifically defined requirements. We guide your team to illustrate a clear user story as portrait of the final deliverable. The requirements will be critically prioritised with backlog established as necessary through Kanban and minimal viable product planning.
Business Case Development and SWOT
Know your competition before investing
Prior to committing in a project investment, we will help you to develop a comprehensive business case with detailed cost benefit analysis. This extremely important work helps you and stakeholders to be absolutely sure of the business project goals, expectations, financial viability, competitor landscape and options. The outcome will position your organisation with strong confidence in the project investment.
The Business Case will be a comprehensive charter detailing all financial and resource costing and forecasts, thus to draw a clear case on the project proposition; if it should proceed and what changes may be necessary to make it viable
Strength, Weakness, Opportunities, and Threats (SWOT) analysis will be conducted to make sure that you and investors are very clear of the business landscape in which the project solution is intending to compete in
Business case development with cost benefit analysis
It will be necessary to develop other options and most importantly an exit strategy. It is always great to have a plan B.
