I found this interesting post in gojko site. It talks about Goal – driven requirements and Focused Projects
Goal-driven requirements gathering process looks like this:
- Identify project goals, prioritise and number them
- For each goal, identify features that help or fulfill that goal. Number the features, and write down related goal next to each feature.
- For each feature, identify system requirements. Number them, and write down related feature next to each requirement.
- When writing specifications or any other supporting documentation, include labels of relevant requirements.
On the end, written list of goals clearly defines an exit criteria and measure of success for the project.
