Join Terri Wagner for an in-depth discussion in this video Structuring formal requirements documents, part of Project Management Foundations: Requirements (2015).
- Mark Twain once wrote, "I'm sorry this letter is so long,…"I didn't have time to write a short one."…Writing concisely takes more work…and effort than rambling on.…To begin writing your requirements you want to start…by defining the formality and level…of detail of your deliverables.…If your organization does not already have a methodology,…you'll want to build and use…document templates for content and structure.…Well written, formally documented user…requirements are key to a project success.…
Writing with a well understood,…clearly documented structure provides the ability…to understand large amounts of information,…while minimizing the number of requirements.…Formal structure also allows you to easily find…sets of requirements related to each other,…and eliminate conflicts between requirements.…Structure can also help you detect duplication,…and realize omission before you wrap up…the specify or document step.…While writing the requirements you want…to remember to document assumptions.…
There are two types of assumptions commonly…
- Differentiate among enterprise, stakeholder, and requirement analyses.
- Summarize the elicitation process.
- Explain the importance of avoiding assumptions.
- Describe how to prioritize requirements.
- Identify techniques for conducting requirements analysis.
- Recall how to create a well-formed requirements checklist.
