Requirements Gathering: A Quick Guide

Requirements gathering is the process of determining all the requirements of a project, which consists of gathering, documenting and analyzing project requirements. There are two main types of project requirements, business and technical, and project managers need to monitor them throughout the project timeline. To ensure effective requirements gathering and management, project managers must answer questions such as how long will the project timeline be, who will be involved in the project, what are the risks for the requirements gathering process, what is our ultimate goal in understanding our project requirements, and what are our technical and business requirements. Once the project team has gathered requirements, they should be compiled in a requirements document, which is used to explain what is needed from the product.
Requirements gathering is an important part of any project, as it helps to define the product vision and how it must be achieved by the end of the project. It also helps to put the product in context and identify the key stakeholders, such as customers, team leads, department managers, board members, business partners or manufacturers, who have the most say in the progress of the project overall. Without proper requirements identification at the outset, deadlines, scope, cost overrun, design issues to the product, and developmental delays will occur, and the product won't be set up for optimal success. To gather requirements in the most effective and manageable way possible, requirements gathering is made up of a few discrete steps: appointing and assigning the project manager, identifying who the key stakeholders will be, brainstorming, analyzing, approving or denying project updates, and defining the product vision.
