Writing High Quality Requirements

May 22, 2019

Writing requirements is hard. There is no simple, formulaic approach to software specification. Requirements management expert Karl Wiegers explains high-quality requirements begin with proper grammar, accurate spelling, well-constructed sentences, and a logical organization.

The highest priority when writing requirements should be ensuring that a product’s promise, functionality, appearance, and value are all clearly and effectively defined for a variety of stakeholders. And writing requirements plays a big role in that. This whitepaper, adapted from the book "More about Software Requirements", presents numerous style guidelines to keep in mind when writing functional requirements.

  • Words to avoid when writing requirements and why
