A workshop is a one-off event that brings together stakeholders and experts in a specific field for a short period of time. 

Participants work together to achieve a common goal.  

Why organise workshops?  

What is the purpose of a workshop?

  • Scoping (for an initiative, requirement, solution, etc.). 
  • Elicit, verify, and prioritise requirements.

  • Reviewing requirements or design. 
  • Make trade-offs. 


  • Enables agreement to be reached in a short time.
