While placing orders for development, you have to make sure you are aiming for the right target. Your prioritization and your methodology is the basis for the future revenue streams for the entire company. Requirement management is key to success. Seven out of ten development projects are failing to reach profitability. Often due to lack of market in-sight and alignment with strategies.

During this Product Planning Excellence program, developed by Tolpagorni and ISPMA, you will learn how to create achievable roadmaps, how to hand-over prioritized requirements to development and the role of requirements engineering in software product management.
