Business Requirements Document(BRD)

A Business Requirement Document is created to describe the business requirements of a product/process and the intended end result that is expected from the product/process. It is one of the most widely accepted project requirement documents and is referred to throughout the development life-cycle for any project.

A BRD mainly focuses on answering ‘what is the business solution’ as opposed to ‘how to achieve the business solution’ and thus, it’s mainly centered around the business requirements.

A BRD is created with the help of the project team (BA, client, subject matter experts, business partners) and is also used as a communication tool for other stakeholders/external service providers.

The Business Requirement Document contains:

  • Project Background
  • Business goals and objectives
  • Stakeholders
  • Requirement scope
  • Functional requirements
  • Data requirements
  • Non-functional requirements
  • Interface requirements
  • Business glossary/Definitions
  • Dependencies of existing systems
  • Assumptions
