Collecting requirements is the process by which the project defines and documents the stakeholder needs and requirements to meet all project objectives. The collect requirements process provides the basis for defining the product and project scope.
The CSPS project uses an iterative approach, including progressive elaboration, to defining and documenting requirements. The collect requirements process includes:
• Current State Assessment – Review, understand, and document current systems and workflows
• Problems and Opportunities – Review, understand, document, and obtain agreement on current systems problems and potential opportunities for improvement
• Future State – Create, document, and validate Solution requirements including backwards and forwards traceability to source materials such as laws, rules, regulations, and bargaining agreements
• Stakeholder Validation – Multiple sessions with subject matter experts to elicit Solution requirements and then validate that Solution requirements are complete and correct
