Organisational transformation has been widely discussed and practised. Organisations tried and tested many ways of collecting requirements and planning their change programmes. In this paper we discuss the fuller role that the requirements specification stage is called to play in organisational transformation. A role that encircles an understanding of the business rules of the organisation, both written and unwritten. We state the implications of our analysis to the infamous Business-IT gap and to all other enablers an organisation may co-opt in order to achieve successful organisational transformation.
