Toronto, Canada, – http://www.watermarklearning.com – Watermark Learning, a leading provider of business analysis, project management and business requirements analysis skill development training, has announced that Principal, Elizabeth Larson, has been chosen to share her deep knowledge of, and methodologies surrounding business analysis, and present a session at the PMI Global Congress North America in Toronto, September 11 – 13, 2005.

In addition she is an experienced public speaker, having presented well-honed business analysis methodologies to thousands of participants at events worldwide, including various PMI seminars and conferences.

Larson was selected by PMI to present a session on gathering business requirements because of her 25+ years of experience in the project management and business analysis industry and continued involvement with the PMI organization.

“Business requirements analysis is one of the most difficult phases in project management,” said Elizabeth Larson, PMP, CEO and Principal of Watermark Learning. “It is also one of the most crucial phases, as the project can be seriously compromised if business requirements are not properly defined by, and gathered from, key stakeholders.”

Watermark places great emphasis on bringing business requirements methodologies and processes in to organizations, enabling them to actively implement best practices.

Larson’s presentation will focus on the causes of mistrust in the gathering of business requirements and will present best practice business analysis methodologies designed to gain and maintain stakeholder trust.
