Stop "gathering" IT requirements

Aktuální článek - jak datem opublikování ( 5.9.06 ), tak tématicky - pod názvem:"Project Managers: Stop "gathering" IT requirements" , přípravil Paul Glen. Plné znění je k dispozici na portálu TechRepublic.com, na níže uvedené adrese. 4 odstavce ( z úvodu a závěru ) Vám nabízím formou citace:
- " ... when I ask why projects get bad requirements, the answers are, "Users won't tell us what they want," or "We don't ask good questions," or "What they told us they wanted turned out not to be what they really wanted." But I think that the problem is more subtle than any of those answers."
- "So if we're gathering requirements, we assume that they must be out there, ready to be assembled like a roll of coins. Our problem is finding and selecting the right ones. So if the users don't tell us what they really want, we should grab them by the ankles, hold them upside down and shake them until those pesky requirements fall out on the floor. The only logical conclusion is that if we don't get good requirements, we haven't shaken enough. "
- "So we must negotiate requirements among the many stakeholders whose positions and interests need to be acknowledged. There are the business interests of executives who fund projects, of course. There are the utility needs of the users who will work with the systems every day. There are also the technical needs of those who build, deploy and support those systems. The list can go on and on."
- "Successful projects begin not with a harvest, but with a difficult set of discussions on what should be done. If you stop trying to gather requirements and start negotiating them, your projects will yield richer crops."
