What is Requirement Management and its severity in Project Management?
Requirement Management is the process of documenting, analysing, tracing, prioritizing and agreeing on requirements and then controlling and communicating the change to stakeholders. Any Project Management Model, be it Waterfall or Agile, Requirement Management plays a vital role and is first step towards designing. Unfocused approach can have adverse effects on investments, time and cost. In fact, as Christopher Lindquist states in CIO Magazine, “Fixing the requirement management mess”, “As many as 71% of software projects that fail do so because of poor requirements management”

Where is Requirement Management important and Who should focus towards it?
Requirement management is applicable from your daily life to highly complex product designs. Be it a E-Commerce, IT & ITES, Aerospace, Manufacturing / Automobile or Hospitality, Pharma, BFSI, all have collated requirements in one or the other way. Organizations addressing Quality, Continuous Improvement, Innovation and Customer Satisfaction should keep Requirement Management on topmost priority.
