We all know that defining IT project requirements is a crucial task when initiating new projects. But did you know that Standish Group’s CHAOS Report shows that a clear statement of requirements is one of the TOP THREE reasons for project success? Since it is clear that defining requirements is one of the top PM best practices, we have compiled a series of steps that every project team should follow in order to get on the track to success.
This procedure puts the users of the solution and the team creating that solution on the same page throughout the project, leading to a greater success rate. Both sides understand and feel ownership of each documented requirement because they were both involved in defining requirements. As project phases are completed, project testing validates that all IT project requirements are met, and therefore the end product meets the overarching goals set in the very beginning. Please share your experiences with defining and following project requirements!
