<p>Developers have plenty of reasons to avoid investing in requirements engineering: It is next to impossible to capture user needs completely, and needs are constantly evolving. The gap between software research and practice is no more evident than in the field of requirements engineering. Requirement engineering has a fairly narrow goal - determine a need and define the external behavior of a solution - but the range of research into requirements is enormous.</p>
