Requirements elicitation refers to the process of communicating with system users, customers, and  system-development stakeholders to determine system requirements. Different elicitation techniques may  be needed to interact with stakeholders and collect user requirements from them. Incomplete,  inconsistent, and incorrect requirements could lead to disastrous results. The fact that human nature plays  a part makes requirements elicitation prone to errors due to the unpredictability factor. Articulating real  requirements can be a challenge for users on quite a few occasions when they aren’t certain about what  exactly they want from the new system. Some of the other challenges associated with requirements  elicitation include: assumptions, access to key stakeholders, insufficient time to contact stakeholders,

It makes requirements elicitation a continuous learning process which improves itself through repeated feedback. Reference: http://www.inteng.com.au/requirements_elicitation.htm...
