Requirements Management

Requirements Management Practice Guide

Organizations continue to experience project issues associated with poor performance on requirements-related activities. This guide will give you the tools you need to excel in requirements development and management — components of the larger field of business analysis and a critical competence for project, program and portfolio management.

Requirements Management: A Practice Guide is a bridge between A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide), which speaks to requirements development and management from a high-level perspective, and Business Analysis for Practitioners: A Practice Guide, which describes requirements development and management at a detailed and practical level. This practice guide is the middle ground, offering project managers, program managers, teams members and stakeholders the opportunity to learn more about the requirements process.

This practice guide:

  • Provides a practical discussion of requirements work
  • Defines “what is” the work of requirements (the tasks, knowledge and skills)
  • Discusses why the work is important
  • Provides a description of the activities performed

Developed by leading experts in the field, it describes requirements work and identifies the tasks and essential knowledge needed to perform requirements management effectively. Applicable to most programs and projects, the concepts and techniques in this practice guide can be used to develop solutions that meet expectations, improve performance, deliver benefits and achieve outcomes.
