Three Simple Questions

There are three simple questions that you can ask when you are starting a new project. These questions will help you prepare for the elicitation process and can also help you validate existing requirements. If you can answer these three questions successfully then you have a foundation for a successful project.

  1. What information is required by which stakeholders?
  2. When does each stakeholder require this information?
  3. How should each stakeholder receive this information?

These three questions will help you determine the stakeholders for a project, the information that each stakeholder needs, schedules for a process or system, the medium or mode of how the information will be handled by a process or system, and more.
