Marketing requirements – Technical requirements

Today I’ve spend half of the day meeting with a web development company. They use a very nice way to convert from MRD (Marketing Requirements Document, which is basically list of features, which sales and marketing want to have implemented in the product) to TRD (Technical Requirements Document, which is a description of functions, procedures and interfaces of the product, written especially for programmers).

The project manager basically creates a wiki-database with functional description of all the technical features. At the beginning this wikipedia contains only the list, which could be printed and signed by the client. Later, all functions, data structures and interfaces find place in the same database, hyperlinked to each other.

They spend more time on building this wiki, than on actuall coding at the end. Simply Brilliant!
