Stakeholder Requirement (glossary)
(1a) The requirements for a system that can provide the services needed by users and other stakeholders in a defined environment. (ISO/IEC, 2008, section 6.4.1)
(1b) The stakeholder requirements definition process identifies stakeholders, as classes of stakeholders, involved with the system throughout its life cycle, and their needs, expectations, and desires. It transforms these into a common set of stakeholder requirements that express the intended interaction that the system will have with its operational environment and that will become the reference against which resulting operational services are validated. (ISO/IEC,2008, section 6.4.1)
ISO/IEC. 2008. Systems and Software Engineering - System Life Cycle Processes. Geneva, Switzerland: International Organization for Standardization (ISO)/International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), ISO/IEC 15288:2008 (E).
Both definitions are taken from the introduction to the "Stakeholder Requirements Definition Process" in ISO/IEC 15288; there is no formal definition of the term "stakeholder requirement" in the standard.
For a full discussion of the role and importance of stakeholder requirements in systems engineering see the Stakeholder Needs and Requirements article.
