IIBA Member Webinars - Interviewing Stakeholders: How to Get the Most (and Best) Requirements

Wednesday, March 22, 2023 -
12:00 to 13:00

Interviewing is a key technique for business analysts to elicit information from stakeholders. Whether a single stakeholder or a group, knowing how to conduct an effective interview enables us to obtain the information and data we need to create requirements, develop processes, and do our other business analysis work. This requires expert interviewing skills that facilitate trust and collaboration. What kinds of questions do we ask and when, and for which stakeholder and scenario? Are there some question types that are better used with individuals than groups? At the same time, how do we document responses accurately and efficiently? Join us to learn the answers from Pamela Paterson, BJ, MS, CBAP, LSSGB, APO, a senior IT business analyst and communications professional who prepared stakeholders for national media interviews.
