“Scott leads a class on determining product/project requirements that is world class in capturing the functional specification of a product. It comes highly recommended for organizations looking to establish a methodology for determining product requirements.”

~ Anthony DeZonno, Aspect Software

"Scott has provided CCC a lot of value over many years. While his company provides coverage over the whole development process, the one area we've used him is in the business analysis processes, the process by which one develops business requirements. His company Group Atlantic has a number of very good sessions that CCC Information Services Inc, has taken advantage's of, among them Right Requirements Right Now, is one of the best. Thus Scott has helped CCC develop good business systems analysis processes and he has also served as a great sounding board for thinking processe through and coming up with evolving best practices for our development processes. I strongly recommend Scott to anyone considering improving their business systems analysts skill sets as well as their overall development processes."

~ Carlos Navarro, CCC Information Services

His real world experiences were directly applicable to my daily activities. I would strongly recommend Scott to any firm that is looking to tighten up their requirement gathering techniques.”

~ John Skowronski, CBOT

Scott's in-depth knowledge of the subject matter, along with his delivery style, enabled our business analysts to grasp the concepts and immediately put them to use in a practical way.
