Most developers like to follow the Nike creed: Just do it! The customer comes to us with a business need, and we immediately move into problem-solving mode. We want to jump in and start writing code. There is no better feeling than completing an application and showing the customer. Until, of course, the customer informs us that this is not quite what he or she had in mind.

Developers can sometimes forget that the first phase of any development project is gathering business requirements to understand what the customer wants. It is only when we agree on the business needs that we can move on to the fun stuff—design and construction.
Product requirements describe the business needs in terms of the main deliverables or products that are created. If you were building a bridge, for instance, most of the requirements would be product based. These might include the number of cars the bridge would hold, the strength of the steel, the water level it needs to span, and the color of the bridge.

Process requirements describe how people interact with a product and how a product interacts with other products. For example, when you discuss how data gets moved and how business transactions flow from one point to another, you are describing process requirements. If you need to handle billing transactions, most of the requirements could end up being process oriented. The requirements would include how billing transactions move from orders to invoicing to accounts receivable. They could describe at what points people look up a status, how people manually update an invoice, and what people should do if accounts are out of balance.

No single customer normally knows all of the requirements up front. You should do a proper follow-up with a number of customers and stakeholders to make sure that you have as complete a picture as possible as to what is needed.

After the requirements are gathered, they should be prioritized and then formally approved by the customer and sponsor
