Templates to help with requirements gathering and business analysis.

The Volere Requirements Specification Template This template is considered to be the most usable and accessible template. It is a distillation of hundreds of requirements documents, and serves as a guide to writing your specifications. The template has been downloaded in excess of 20,000 times. This links to a sample of the template. The full version is available as a paid-for download. The download includes Microsoft Word and PDF versions, along with a spreadsheet for entering the atomic requirements. There are also two sample specifications that use the Template.

Stakeholder Analysis. The stakeholder analysis is a spreadsheet enabling you to match types of knowledge with the roles in your organisation that provide the needed knowledge. The analysis spreadsheet is an effective way of recording and keeping track of all your stakeholders. This is recommended for larger projects. Download the Excel spreadsheet.
