At its core, project requirements are defined as all the work that must be completed within a project. Proper project requirements gathering helps ensure that the project is finished on time and within budget constraints. Not coincidentally, it’s one of the most difficult tasks for project managers because it usually requires an in-depth knowledge of the client and/or subject matter. However if done correctly, identifying project requirements early on fosters strong client relationships and sets the foundation for a successfully completed project.
Overview of requirements gathering process
The requirements gathering phase of a project is one of the most important processes for project managers. Failure to adequately understand what the client or stakeholders are expecting will spell trouble down the road.
