General FAQ

How to gather requirements?
Requirements gathering refers to the practice of defining software requirements. At its core, this is the process of understanding what you’re supposed to be building, and why you’re building it. The requirement gathering process usually is conducted by the product manager and the requirements are gathered from relevant stakeholders. Those requirements are usually communicated to the team in a way where everyone from the team understands them and knows what they’re supposed to build.
