2.4. Business Drivers and Requirements Specification

Achieving the right balance of documentation is often the most difficult part of any project. Too much documentation often wastes time, is not read by the stakeholders, or is poorly maintained as the project naturally evolves. Poor documentation leads to confusion in later stages. Our philosophy is to provide a minimalist approach to documentation. We will focus on the required elements and the process that leads to the creation of the document. These can be tailored to the needs of the organization.

The Business Drivers and Requirements Specification is the document that describes what the business is attempting to achieve. This specification becomes the guiding light of the project and will be used until the system is operational to assess the business impact. When the development team is provided this level of information, it helps them stay focused on the goals leading to a higher probability of success in the development phase. To see the full Business Drivers and Requirements Specification, please see Appendix A. Note that the brackets in the tables refer to specific information to be added to the table.
