June 2023 - AGM + Elicit and Collaborate Like A Pro! Top Tips from an Expert

Thursday, June 1, 2023 -
11:30am to 1:00pm

We will host our Annual General Meeting activities from 11:30AM - 12:00PM and will follow with our speaker presentation at 12:00PM-1:00PM

Excellent elicitation and collaboration has been cited as one of the key success factors in optimizing and managing stakeholder relationships. As business analysts, stakeholders are our main source of information on a project, so it is critical to our success that we understand and navigate elicitation and collaboration effectively. The problem is, how do we do it? How do we overcome inherent problems such as zoomed-out, stressed out stakeholders who don't participate? What are the different types of stakeholders and how do we deal with each of them? What are the best techniques for each stakeholder type? Join us to learn the top techniques for effective elicitation and collaboration from Pamela Paterson, CBAP, PMP, an expert and international best-selling author in business analysis.
