9 Myths of Software Requirements Gathering

On-Demand Webinar


Requirements gathering (or “requirements elicitation”) is a critical process for any successful software development project.

If you fail to clearly define the key features of the product to be built, your team runs the very real risk of spending countless hours developing a system or app that fails to meet client expectations and user needs.

This 1-hour webinar introduces participants to nine common myths regarding requirements gathering that you and your team can let go of, along with expert tips that will help you move forward with more confidence and manage your projects more successfully.

Intended Audience

This webinar is useful to anyone involved in the ideation, design, development, use, or support of a software application. If you're interested in improving your requirements-gathering skills or learning more about the process, you'll gain valuable insight into this – often challenging – step in the software development lifecycle.


The following topics are covered in this webinar:

  • How to choose the right requirements-management methodology and tools
  • Which team members and stakeholders to include in the requirements-gathering process
  • Best practices and recommendations for gathering requirements and keeping the process running smoothly
  • The difference between requirements and technical specifications
  • How requirements gathering fits into the software development life cycle (SDLC)


No prior experience with software requirements gathering is necessary. The presentation does make references to technical and non-technical use cases, so any experience in the process of collecting requirements or developing software will potentially enhance knowledge retention, but such a background is not necessary.
