This mini-tutorial will provide high-level guidance on designing a requirements management solution and selecting a requirements management tool. The guidance will focus on first understanding the context, stakeholders and tasks, so on articulating the problems that need to be addressed and the constraints that shape viable options. The guidance will also attend to the equally critical issue of managing the high expectations that are typically associated with requirements management tool adoption and use. Through examining the minimum and desirable requirements, based upon the type and size of project, the question of whether a requirements management tool is needed at all can also be considered.
