Statistics indicate it, Business Analysts proclaim it, Customers complain about it! Requirements gathering and successful delivery of functionality is a difficult and often frustrating project task. When requirements are managed poorly and incorrectly, the outcome can lead to seriously challenged projects and project failure.
Obtaining the "real" requirements from stakeholders is the objective. It has been, and continues to be, one of the major obstacles that must be overcome to achieve project success. Clients and other key stakeholders often struggle with the requirements gathering process because they find it difficult to articulate their actual needs. They focus more on providing specifications than actually describing the required functionality. The result is a collection of "nice to haves," unneeded features, partially explained functionality, and specifications that are labeled as requirements.
This presentation examines some of these issues and offers suggestions and techniques that may improve the requirements gathering process and increase the probability of meeting stakeholder expectations. It is very well known within the project management community that effective Gathering, Management, and Delivery of requirements are critical success factors and a well-defined methodology will position you for a favorable project experience.
