Questions to Ask Stakeholders About Products
The following questions can help you determine workshop inputs and outputs. You can preface these questions by saying, "The next set of questions will help us determine what products to deliver during the workshop."
What deliverables do you expect to produce in the workshop?
How much detail should each deliverable have?
What criteria will you use to determine that the deliverables are complete, clear, and correct? How will we know that they have the quality you expect and need?
Would you rather have more requirements delivered at a higher level of detail, or fewer requirements with more detail?
What products are needed as input to the workshop? How much lead time do we have to pull together input products?
Who can review the instructions for the group activities that we'll create?
Where will the workshop materials be stored (a workshop repository)? Do we need to do any work to create this repository?
See the Web site for the book for more questions about workshop products.
