Define Acceptance Criteria

Define Acceptance Criteria

“If projects have defined acceptance criteria, then project managers will be able to better manage stakeholder expectations, but how project outcomes will meet the needs should be discussed and documented early in the planning.”

“If a project enables value realization, then the business will experience a higher return on its investment, but the worth of the project outcome and the cost to produce it needs to be calculated and measured before and after the project is finished.”

Requirement Tracing

Requirement Tracing


“If we conduct requirements tracing, then we can conduct change impact analysis, but we will need to maintain a Traceability Matrix.”

Where did that requirement come from, is that requirement satisfied, and how is that requirement being satisfied are three different questions that the PM needs to have an answer for. In the past, many methods have been used, but all approaches have similarities as well.
