You need information and stakeholder buy-in prior to writing requirements. We call the collection and documentation of this information “Scope”. Whether you begin writing requirements with a clean slate or respond to a customer’s set of requirements, understanding the Scope of the product is essential prior to writing, reviewing, or implementing requirements.
Failure to address Scope prior to writing requirements is one of the major reasons for continuous requirement rework and failure to obtain a good set of requirements in a timely manner. No one can write requirements without a vision. Without a documented Scope, each author will have a different vision and the resulting requirements will be woefully defective. Efforts to identify defective requirements are not only time consuming, but fraught with arguments between team members who have different visions. Due to time constraints, you will find yourself in verification before you uncover all the requirement defects.
