Requirements Analysis Techniques

Which requirements analysis technique should I use? Which one is the best for my project? For a quick reference, our Requirements Analysis Techniques Listing highlights the most widely used techniques by business analysis professionals.

Poor requirements analysis results in solving the wrong problem, missing requirements, or ineffective communication with critical stakeholders. Excellent requirements analysis provides an effective communication vehicle and allows for collaboration among stakeholders to find and fill-in gaps, clarify requirements, examine alternative solutions, and ultimately develop an excellent product or solution.


  • Simplify your requirements into four core components that are easier to “consume”
  • Still writing requirements? Instead, identify the most effective diagramming techniques and modeling options to support your software development approach (waterfall, iterative, and agile) and project type
  • Compare analysis techniques to select the technique(s) that will best:
  • support your critical thinking, understanding, and problem solving
  • communicate to stakeholders information to enhance review
  • Minimize confusion and development errors by developing excellent requirements that can be easily understood by distributed or outsourced teams
  • Improve your models and diagrams during analysis by asking the right questions
