Skills Required:

 

Understanding Stakeholder Needs 

 Requirements come from many sources. You need to know how to best determine what the sources should be, get access to those sources, and also how to best elicit information from them. You may have end user experience and business domain expertise. Very often you will start the discussions at a business model level rather than a system level. Elicitation activities will occur using techniques such as interviews, brainstorming, conceptual prototyping, questionnaires, and competitive analysis. The result of the elicitation would be a list of requests or needs that are described textually and graphically, and that have been given priority relative one another. 


Defining a System 

 To define the system means to translate and organize the understanding of stakeholder needs into a meaningful description of the system to be built. The outcome of system definition is a description of the system that is both natural language and graphical. 


Managing Changing Requirements 

 You need to make sure that you give your requirements a structure that is resilient to changes, and that you use traceability links to represent dependencies between requirements.
