Participants are introduced to Displayed Thinking, use-cases, requirements interviews ,requirements meetings, requirements documentation, and many other topics critical to the success of a complex project. Project Scope Management includes the processes required to ensure that the project includes all the work required, and only the work required to complete the project successfully.
