Why do we need to spend so much time on defining business requirements?

It is paramount that business requirements are reviewed and redefined regularly. This should be done in isolation of any project work but also as part of a project to ensure the business is operating efficiently at all times. Further to this, when done as part of a project it is important to explore what the project will deliver and how the business requirements might therefore change.

The more detailed the business requirements the better the implementation as any development or configuration relies on this detail.
