When the requirements are poorly defined, you are left with many question marks and holes in the project that lead to its failure. Besides, if you have missing requirements or poor specification, it will take a lot of time to correct it, and you will have to conduct additional meetings or interviews with the customer to discuss everything through and update your specification.

Unclear Project Idea

In certain cases, customers can’t clearly describe their ideas, making the process of requirements gathering rather painful and challenging. Multiple iterations with the customers might be required to reduce misconception and better understand what should be included in a project. It all turns requirements gathering into a long-lasting process.

Inadequate requirements

Inadequate requirements result in poor cost estimates that may be higher or lower than the actual project cost. Besides, requirements errors may lead to resources wasted on unnecessary work and project defects.


Most businesses want to spend less time on requirements documentation so they produce bare outlines without any detail. Such approach often results in the above-mentioned problems since the lack of detail leads to the possibility of increased errors.
