Software development projects suffer most when changes in requirements set off a chain reaction of delays, revisions, and rework. This happens all too often, as existing processes for establishing requirements are ad-hoc and inefficient, making it difficult for business people to communicate their needs to technology teams. This leads to miscommunication and insufficiently defined requirements that drive up development costs and delay projects.
To address the root cause of the problem, you need ...
