Fiona Charles Says "Requirements suck. Get over it!"

From EuroSTAR

In this video, during a a Soap - box session that was recorded at EuroSTAR 2012, Fiona Charles says "Requirements suck. Get over it!" Well said, Fiona.

Mostly she is telling us that the written Requirements we receive from others will pretty much always be inadequate. I agree with most everything she says. And I wrote a post a while back called "There are ALWAYS Requirements" that echoes a lot of what Fiona said:

There are ALWAYS requirements - even if they are not formally documented. They may take some time to discover and list, but they exist.
