Description

The Discovery Report summarizes finding from the Discovery phase, in which investigations are carried out.

The document may be updated as the discovery activity continues, for example adding data to the appendix and updating changing conclusions.

Where the Discovery activity is extensive, it may be described in a number of documents as appropriate.

Note that the Discovery Report is different from the Requirements document, which is a more formal description of what is wanted. Depending on the project, either or both documents may be appropriate.
