Requirements Gathering and Management Processes
Requirements gathering is the process of understanding what you are trying to build and why you are building it. Requirements gathering is often regarded as a part of developing software applications or of cyber-physical systems like aircraft, spacecraft, and automobiles (where specifications cover both software and hardware). It can, however, be applied to any product or project, from designing a spaceship to building a patio deck.
In this chapter, we look at:
- Best practices for requirements gathering
- Defining and implementing requirements baselines
- Requirements gathering techniques for Agile teams
- Requirements analysis
