Gartner misattributes several benefits of good process to RDM tools. We give them a 3.5/7 for their analysis – check out the details here.

*Requirement Development & Management (RDM)

Article: (RD/REQM) 12 Tips for a More Motivated Team and Better Results by Rob Bryant.
Lean Six Sigma, a process-driven program to reduce defects, relies heavily on a decidedly process-free emotion: passion. A motivated, driven team can make the difference between success and failure.
I know about the power of motivation – I learned to walk again with braces and crutches after a 55-foot fall that left me as a paraplegic. While an unmotivated person may give up at the first sign of adversity, a passionate person will push through tough obstacles.
