What are the best practices for requirements management?

Industry research shows that 47 percent of projects fail due to poor requirements management. Leading enterprises identify end user needs, collaborate across stakeholders, and establish a shared understanding of constraints through the lifecycle, resulting in traceability and visibility of changes to reduce redundancy and ambiguity.
