Martin will set the context by referring to his systematic method to evaluate, select and procure off-the-shelf solutions. This augments (with highly specific and relevant techniques and philosophies) the organisation’s normal approaches to business analysis, project sponsorship and management, technology management, decision-making, due diligence, procurement and change management.
He will then cover several specific dimensions where requirements definition needs to be distinctive for the procurement specification to be fit for purpose. Martin will also show how the requirements are transformed to feed all stages of the selection, from longlisting to negotiation.
Martin’s handouts will contain illustrations and extensive references to the field of Procurement-Oriented Requirements Engineering (PORE).
The slides will be available 24 hours before the talk on bit.ly/resg201603.
