There are times when requirements gathering and elicitation just does not go as planned. When it comes to getting someone talking the FBI knows what it takes. The FBI teaches people how to identify when someone is resisting, the natural human instincts that drive us into action, and how to elicit information using conversational techniques. I have converted these into techniques that can be used by Business Analysts and Product Owners to gain insights for requirements when typical techniques are not working. This session, Part 1: Getting Information & Details, focuses on those techniques that help people open up, join the conversation, and provide details. Adding these skills and techniques will improve your relationship building, active listening, and reading the person or conversation.
