Statistics:Article Rating (7817 Views) (0 Comments)


Successful software projects are built on a foundation of well-understood requirements. However, many development organizations get caught in traps that prevent them from effectively collecting, documenting, or managing their requirements. This presentation describes ten typical requirements problems that can sabotage your project. Several symptoms that indicate you might be getting caught in each trap are presented, along with suggestions for avoiding or escaping from the trap. 

The requirements traps discussed are: 

  • Confusion about what a requirement is 
  • Inadequate customer involvement 
  • Vague and ambiguous requirements 
  • Unprioritized requirements 
  • Building functionality no one uses 
  • Analysis paralysis 
  • Scope creep 
  • Inadequate requirements change process
  • Insufficient change impact analysis 
  • Inadequate requirements version control 
** Eligible for PDUs, CDUs. **
