It took me about five minutes to read thru this short article. What it lacked
in length, it more than made up for in impact. Though it didn?t provide any
?how-to? for a learning environment, it did serve as an effective wake-up call
for anyone attempting requirements elicitation. This is a good quick read to
ground anyone attempting the deceivingly difficult task.

This site presented several possible causes of project failure. It served as a
good reference tool.

I spent about 15 minutes reviewing this material. The content offers a differing
opinion on the requirements process. This content is a text file and was east
to read and understand.
