  • Work with the team to identify changes in scope and manage these through prioritisation, backlog and change control processes.

  • Facilitate scoping and estimating sessions at both Project Initiation level and through planning and re-planning sessions within the project.

  • Review completed requirements and facilitating document sign off with the business.

  • Support testing and UAT phases by providing key input to processes such as defect review and triage.
