What are the essential ingredients and deliverables for Drupal project requirements gathering - a list of features, a set of user stories, a list of modules, a PSD?

In this session, Vanessa Turke, a seasoned project manager, information architect and user experience professional will present a number of approaches to requirements gathering and specification documentation along with a discussion of the strengths and weaknesses of each.

This session is for anyone who is responsible for contributing to the collection of project specifications and requirements for a Drupal site - whether they be account managers, IA/UX, technical or creative team members.

Expect to come away from this talk with a fresh perspective on the requirements gathering process and some tips and tricks for getting multi-disciplinary teams and project stakeholder groups onto the same page.
