November Chapter Meeting - Formulating the Experiment: Pilots, Prototypes, and Proofs of Concept

Wednesday, November 17, 2021 -
4:00pm to 5:30pm

Overview and Learning Objectives

Experimentation is a powerful tool of product development that can be used to elicit and validate requirements, evaluate solutions, and mitigate risk. While pilots, prototypes, and proofs of concept are ubiquitous in product development today, their objectives and outcomes are often misunderstood and ambiguously defined, muting their effectiveness.  Enhanced knowledge of experimentation techniques can be a vital resource in a business analyst’s toolkit, especially for those working with emerging technologies and innovations.
This session will cover:

  • Characteristics, objectives, and outcomes of each type of experiment
  • Critical questions for eliciting deliverable requirements and defining the experiment
  • Using experiments as requirements elicitation and solution evaluation techniques
  • Tips for maximizing the outcomes of the experiment


4:00 - 5:00  Presentation​
5:00 - 5:30  Q&A​
