Webinar Q & A: Closing the Gap Between Risk and Requirements

Thanks to everyone who attended the Closing the Gap Between Risk and Requirements webinars last week! Here are the edited questions and answers from both sessions.

Questions & Answers

Q: Is the risk management solution a separate tool?

Contact your account manager or email sales@seapine.com for more information about TestTrack RM.

[Webinar Recording] Closing the Gap Between Risk and Requirements

webinar

If you’re managing risk in Excel but your requirements are in a separate tool, you are creating a gap that has significant time costs to manage and increases the possibility of errors.

  • How hard is it to keep your risk register updated as requirements change?
  • Do you know the current status of your mitigating actions?
  • Can you assign actions, see who is responsible for each action, and see if they are making progress?
  • And, most importantly, can you relate all this information back to your requirements?

Watch this webinar recording to learn more about closing the gap between risk and requirements. Using an FMEA as an example, Gordon Alexander, Seapine Software solutions consultant,  explains how an integrated risk and requirements management solution can save you time and help you systematically and continuously manage risks and requirements.
