Professional and structured requirements management increasingly plays a very important role in the introduction of new systems, the development of existing systems or the adaptation of existing procedures, processes and services.
Often requirements are formulated unclearly in the project, taken for granted or not defined at all, which can lead to systems/products/services being developed incorrectly or incompletely, which in turn causes many costs for future troubleshooting. The earlier and more detailed requirements are defined and agreed upon, the faster potential risks are uncovered and future costs are minimized if errors are discovered later.
Requirements also contribute to project planning by enabling prioritization and effort estimation of issues that can be considered in further project planning. In addition, professional requirements management ensures that all stakeholders have a better understanding of what is being developed and that these developments meet the needs and desires of the stakeholders.
We have several IREB-certified consultants who have many years of experience in requirements management and would be happy to advise you as a requirements manager. It is very important for us that all stakeholders in the project have a common understanding of your requirements and that these are quality-checked and agreed with all parties through the entire project lifecycle.
We use different techniques to determine all relevant requirements depending on the framework conditions, your budget and the availability of the relevant stakeholders. Workshops on specific topics, questionnaires, interviews, change of perspective, apprenticing, design thinking workshops are just some of the techniques we master. We support you in the context of requirements management situationally as well as operationally.
As experts in requirements management, we are happy to advise you on the selection of suitable requirements tools. We explain the advantages of standard office applications, more complex specialized tools or other tools that allow the integration of development artifacts (such as Jira, Confluence, etc.).
Changes to requirements occur very frequently. We are happy to support you with professional requirements management and lay the foundations for a structured change management process.
