Methods and tools for efficient requirements management

Requirements must be managed efficiently and securely throughout the lifecycle of a project and the resulting product. This starts with the structuring of requirements in a repository, continues with the use of attributes, setting the right priorities, version and change management, and ends with the tracking of changes and their evaluation using traceability.

In this training, you will learn which methods and tools you can use to achieve efficient requirements management.

benefits

We know that you can learn best when you feel good! Therefore, you receive not only a first class training but also an all around-catering and supervision.

open and in-house courses

If you want to determine the time and location of your training yourself, then our coach will come to you. With our in-house courses, everything is based on the wishes of our customers. Here you can see our range of in-house training courses. Go to our training

If you don’t wish to spend time and effort organising a training course, but simply want to register and get going while meeting new colleagues in your sector, then come to our open courses. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Go to in-house training

small learning groups

As a training participant, you of course benefit from learning in a group and the experience of the other participants. Yet to ensure that you get to pose all of your own questions, we keep the group sizes very small, with a maximum of 10 participants. This allows our coaches to make certain that we meet the needs of all participants, even if the participants’ levels of existing knowledge differ.

date guarantee

Our courses are guaranteed to take place from as few as three participants, and provide you with long-term planning certainty for your training activities.

printed teaching materials

Making notes, writing down questions, post-it notes with reminders for content that you want to return to later – not a problem at all, as we provide all the materials in printed format at your workstation. Even though we strongly advocate progressive technologies, we value the printed format when it comes to working in a learning environment and to course preparation and follow-up at home, in your hotel or back at your place of work.

trendig’s event ticket of Deutsche Bahn

In cooperation with Deutsche Bahn, trendig offers special conditions to travel to our training courses and conferences comfortably and environmentally friendly - with 100% electricity generated by renewable resources in long-distance travel, at a nationwide fixed price, from any DB railway station.

The extra for you as a participant: Your event ticket is valid 2 days before and 2 days after the event, for a maximum of 14 days, and city tickets for public transport connections are included.

fresh break-time snacks & a delicious lunch

We know that a sense of well-being helps you learn better. This is why we provide not only fresh knowledge, but also comprehensive catering during all breaks, with fresh and dried fruits, as well as other nerve-soothing foods ranging from nuts to biscuits. A lunch with all participants and our coaches is also a fixed part of our catering package.

hot and cold drinks

We ensure a limitless supply of hot and cold drinks throughout the duration of the course. So you can leave your thermos flask and water bottle at home, and let us serve you.

lean coffee or lean pizza event

Some of the course content requires further discussions and, when considered in-depth, throws up further questions which cannot be resolved within a normal training day. To this end, for all our 4- and 5-day courses we offer an in-depth session on one morning or evening, including catering. The participants jointly agree whether they would prefer to get up earlier or stay later, and which topics they would prefer to explore in greater depth with our coach in an informal atmosphere.

free wifi

We offer free WIFI at all our training locations. To allow you to quickly get to work at our premises, let us know in advance of the course and we will provide you with access details and a password.

examination service

The DIN/ISO 17024 requirements stipulate that training companies cannot themselves provide the examination. An independent certification institute carries out the examination, not least to ensure the independent quality control of our training courses. We offer you the services of the certification institute so that you don’t incur the additional hassle of securing an examination appointment. We invoice the examination fee and organise your exam at the end of the course. You can simply focus on getting prepared.

experienced trainers

In addition to their teaching work, all of our trainers have been and continue to be involved in projects, with each of them possessing more than 15 years of professional experience in various sectors. They have also all additionally acquired teaching qualifications. It is important to us not just to teach the training material, but also to enable each participant to enact what they have learned in the workplace. The point is for it to not feel superimposed, but instead for the acquired knowledge to be incorporated effortlessly into your own work.

feel-good atmosphere

We don’t hold with dilapidated offices that are unfit for running a business from but which are deemed good enough for a week’s training, and whose lack of light makes it easier to read the PPT slides. We know that a sense of well-being helps you learn better. That is why all our rooms are well-lit and have large windows. They feature a wealth of opportunities for creative development. Breaks are always spent outside the classrooms. After all, a change of scene is a key element to then being able to once more concentrate on the course content. And we of course also provide a sufficient supply of hot and cold drinks, as well as the necessary nerve-soothing snacks. Is there anything else we can help you with? Then please let us know! We make many things possible.

individually tailored

Whether it’s alone or in a group, as an open seminar with participants from several companies, or in-house with your own colleagues; whether standardised with certification exams, or tailored to your own professional practice – we provide the right training for a great variety of topics. Even if you wish to combine certain course content, want to put something special together for a distributed team, or are interested in tiered pricing and loyalty bonuses, please get in touch with us directly. We are experienced and flexible, and can offer all teaching programmes as virtual courses and in several languages. We are happy to provide you with an individually tailored offer – we just have to get to know you and your requirements.

early-booking and group discounts

Do you already know your training requirements for next year and want to come to our training courses with several other people? Then let us know! It helps us to be able to plan ahead, and we are therefore happy to offer you a discount.
