Requirements can change frequently during a SharePoint project, and therefore projects need a streamlined, flexible approach to requirements change management. SharePoint professionals want to develop systems and services which are both high-quality and high-value, and the easiest way to achieve this is to implement the highest priority requirements first. This enables the projects to maximize value for their stakeholders.
