25.3 Defining product descriptions

It is important when using PRINCE2 with agile to define product descriptions at the correct level of detail at the right time and then allow them to evolve. Too much detail will stifle the dynamic and responsive nature of agile because agile refines the detailed understanding of a product as it evolves. Equally, too little detail creates room for misunderstanding, as requirements would be too vague. This would then need further clarification or rework, causing delays and probably frustration.
