    System products need to be developed faster in a global development environment. A more efficient user requirements collection and product feature analysis become more important to meet strict time-to-market and quality constraints.
    The goal of this research is to study and find the best practices to support distributed business requirements management during the early phases of product development. The paper describes the process of mining require-ments management organizational patterns.
    The experiences and improvement ideas of requirements management have been collected from a large company operating in the sector of the process automation industry. The results present issues that were found important when managing requirements in a distributed environment.
    The results are further generalized in the form of an organiza-tional pattern which makes it easier for other companies to reflect on and to apply the results to their own cases.
