Understanding Reporting Requirements



Designing a report is more than just stating a requirement, “Users must be able to report on the data.” What information needs to be reported? What questions is the business trying to ask? What answers are they looking for? What pieces of information do they need to make actionable decisions? Is the information available? What is the volume of information being utilized? How current and accessible does the data need to be? Participants will discuss all of these questions and others related to defining reporting requirements.

Participants should bring report samples, prototypes or report requirements.


  • Review report purpose and audience
  • Discuss what decisions or actions are being performed as a result of the report
  • Identify gaps in requirements and develop outstanding questions
  • Revise report detail requirements
