      It could be, or maybe it precedes (or post-cedes) the creation of those artifacts.

    We like to start with Capabilities Based Planning. “What capabilities does this software need to provide to enable the business case or mission to be accomplished?”
    What are the measures of effectiveness and measures of performance for those capabilities and how will we recognize these when they are done?
    The whole nonsense of agile “let’s start,” is just that nonsense in any non-trivial domain.

      The “what” and the “how well”.

    Yes, and from there comes the decomposition of the result. for example
    ■ We need the capability to pre–process insurance claims at $0.07 per transaction rather than the current $0.11 per transaction.
    ■ We need the capability to remove 1½ hours from the retail ordering process once the merger is complete.
    ■ We need the capability to change the Wide Field Camera and the internal nickel hydride batteries, while doing no harm to the telescope.
    ■ We need the capability to fly 4 astronauts to the International Space Station, dock, stay 6 months, and return safely.
    ■ We need the capability to control the Hell Fire Missile with a new touch panel while maintaining existing navigation and guidance capabilities in the helicopter.
    ■ We need the capability to comply with FAR Part 15 using the current ERP system and its supporting work processes.
