Building a great product requires tons of research and comprehensive planning and prep. It's important to consider the purpose of the product, its features, functionality, and behaviour. But a critical factor that often creates a requirement bottleneck is the misalignment between business and IT stakeholders. Misalignment between these two groups leads to hours of rework, slower development speed, lower product quality, and frustrated customers.
Improving the requirements management process can significantly improve efficiency, time to market, and save valuable budget and resources - but how does this fit into an agile world? Well, agile requirements are the product owner's best friend. Agile requirements bridge the gap between business and IT stakeholders, promoting a shared view and understanding of the end-users expectations, improving overall product quality and customer satisfaction.
