When projects fail or get into trouble, the term “bad project management” is generally used. However, studies have long since found out that in over 60% of cases the reason is inadequate handling of project requirements, even if the actual project management is carried out quite adequately.
For this reason, the topic of “requirements management” (often also referred to as business analysis, requirements engineering or needs assessment) has been gaining more and more attention in various industries in recent years, but not all companies are convinced of the benefits of systematic requirements management. Opinions such as “Our customers tell us what they want anyway” or “We don’t want to write documents that aren’t right anyway” are unfortunately still often found in people’s minds.
Even companies that have recognized the importance of requirements management don’t always find it easy to anchor this topic successfully and sustainably in the project context.
As a solution to this dilemma, we have developed a method for tailoring requirements processes in recent years that helps companies to define a tailor-made approach for the individual context of a project or project type. Supplemented by an assisting software solution, companies can easily be enabled to actually use this success-critical discipline with justifiable effort and desired added value.
On 11.04.2019 at 19:00 we will present our approach as well as the associated software solution at the University of Applied Sciences in Karlsruhe and play through it together with the audience.
