Practical Workshops - Students Functionally size an Enhancement Project Specification

OUTCOMES AND BENEFITS:

  • Formal Industry standard methods for quantitatively scoping projects such that size can be objectively compared with past and future projects
  • Requirements changes can be formally quantified so pricing variations can be easily agreed and verified between developers and users
  • Industry comparable project size enables industry data to be used to verify estimates and compare project cost effectiveness
