Have you delivered exactly what the business customers asked for and they were not happy? Have you ever found yourself saying “The customers do not know what they want!”? if you answered ‘yes’ then this session is for you… After working as a bridge for many years between a diverse set of business partners and developers, Debra has developed some simple techniques for unlocking and delivering what the business customers really need.
