[Context and motivation] When developing software, coordination

between different organizational units is essential in order to develop a good

quality product, on time and within budget. Particularly, the synchronization

between requirements and verification processes is crucial in order to assure

that the developed software product satisfies customer requirements.

[Question/problem] Our research question is: what are the current challenges

in aligning the requirements and verification processes? [Principal

ideas/results] We conducted an interview study at a large software

development company. This paper presents preliminary findings of these

interviews that identify key challenges in aligning requirements and verification

processes. [Contribution] The result of this study includes a range of

challenges faced by the studied organization grouped into the categories:

organization and processes, people, tools, requirements process, testing process,

change management, traceability, and measurement. The findings of this study

can be used by practitioners as a basis for investigating alignment in their

organizations, and by scientists in developing approaches for more efficient and

effective management of the alignment between requirements and verification.
