“Group Atlantic’s High Performance Teams Training taught by Scott Stribrny is the best training you can get for your teams.  This training coaches the team through creating a shared mindset for defining values, responsibilities and providing and giving feedback.  Practicing the principles in this training builds a solid team vision for where they need to be and how to get there.  Within weeks, teams are functioning as one.  Scott and the training completely exceeded expectations and is highly recommended.”

~ Keith T., Walgreen Co.

“Since our training I completed use cases/requirements for a new version of one of our existing systems.  

We had a meeting today where we compared IT's estimates to actuals for different project phases.  IT had allotted 65 hours for requirements review (based on historical data) & our actual hours were only 16. 

Our VP jumped on it right away & asked why.  It was noted that the major factor was the solidity of the requirements & not as much time needed for clarification, etc.

Obviously, this is largely due to the training we received from you & the new methods we have incorporated into writing the use cases/requirements since attending your workshop.  So, thank you for that!"

~ Jenny Bucek, TMP Directional Marketing, Inc.

“Use Cases: Bridging the Requirements Gap" is definitely appropriately named for this workshop. It really did bridge the gaps in our requirements processes!

This workshop provided the insights of an "ambiguity removal tool" that our team has used with great success and consistency subsequent to the completion of this class.

It has become almost second nature for our BSA team members to use Use Cases to paint a picture that is easily understood by our stakeholders."

~ Brian Quon, CCC Information Services, Inc.
