10 Success Factors of Future-proof Requirements Management

Requirements Management has come a long way. The first Requirements Management (RM) document may well have started out as a rough product concept sketched on to post-it notes. By today, RM has evolved into a set of cutting-edge tools and best practices that enable product development teams to efficiently build quality software.

Yet a software project that perfectly fits customer needs and is delivered on time and at the planned cost level is still a rare sight. As the market environment we build products for is getting more and more competitive, developers are starting to realize the huge effect that requirements management has on their bottom line. A growing number of companies today understand that future-proofing their requirements management processes and toolchains is a crucial business need.

In this eBook you will find the 10 key success factors that contribute to a well-functioning requirements management lifecycle. Analyse your current RM processes and toolset against this checklist to see if you’re ready for future challenges in developing software for a fast-paced, IoT connected market.
