Identifying Stakeholder Requirements

Here’s my take on a key first step in the development of any
functional spec – the identification of stakeholder requirements.

Let's start by defining the term 'stakeholder'. A stakeholder can
be anyone who has an interest in the successful completion of a
project. This may include the individual(s) authorizing the project
as well as the folks who will actually be using the application. Once
you have identified the stakeholders, at a minimum, you'll need to
get answers to the following questions:

query: mobile functionality trends

Hi All,

Im curious if anyone has come across any recent research or trend projections regarding the future of mobile phone form / functionality / IxD, as a result of nano-technologies impacting the industry.
Sorta along the lines of what Nokia is projecting in 5-7 years with Morph.
Apologies if this is already an ancient line of discussion here...

Users' ability to predict features they "need"

Hi all,

I'm looking for some information about users' ability to predict the
features that they need. In the past, I've heard the statement "people are
poor predictors of the features they need." I tend to agree with this
argument, especially since I encounter cases where clients feel they "need"
blogs, forums or whatever without first analyzing the goals of their users.

What I can't recall is if there are studies that support or refute this

Software for requirements management

Hey there folks,

What are people using (especially for in-house types) for requirements
management throughout the entire product management lifecycle:
1. input channels and research capture
2. concept capture
3. requirements definition
4. design docs
5. technical docs
6. QC test scripts
7. launch, rollout, marketing plans

Something that deals w/ workflow and lifecycle management
Has strong permissioning
Well designed (something I would WANT to use)
Understands that software requires a designer (sheesh!)
works well on pc and mac
