A product requirements document (PRD) is an essential document for any company and outlines its product's purpose, features, functionalities, and behavior. It serves as a guide for launch and beyond and is an indispensable tool for uniting all stakeholders over a common vision for the product. The PRD should ideally communicate the overall vision of what is to be accomplished, and connect company initiatives to each step of your journey.
To build your product requirements document, complete each section of the worksheet (objective, release, features, user flow and design, analytics, and future work) keeping in mind the overall vision and values of your company. The PRD is a continually maturing document that has the capacity for growth as you evolve.
