Clear requirements help create a shared understanding between stakeholders and developers on what needs to be met to achieved. Keep in mind that the shared understanding comes from the joined journey, not solely the documents.

 

 

 

Interfaces

Changes to, or new interfaces between systems in projects can easilyt become a source for friction between teams. It requires an unbiased position and good teamwork between project managers, team managers and architects to ensure responsibilities are clear and design decisions like trade offs are made on an integral level to prevent suboptimalization leaving gaps. Good analogy would be a bridge between two countries with questions like: Who pays for the bridge? And what if a little flexibility on one side would help save substantial costs on the other side?
