For this event, we will look at the interactions between requirements engineering and project management. Many have argued for requirements-led project management whereby well-defined requirements are central to manage all project activities and risks. However, for many complex projects this dream is not reality. Based on his experience in regulated industries such as the nuclear and pharmaceutical sectors, Steve Rivkin will discuss how a closer integration between requirements engineering and project management is possible and leads to more successful projects.

18:00 Open
18:30 Talk and Discussion

20:30 Close

This is a joint event of the BCS Requirements Engineering Specialist Group and the Association for Project Management.
