A focus group is a way to use representatives of a larger population to gather ideas. In a facilitated session, representative stakeholders meet, with a facilitator, and sometimes with experts to discuss their preferences and needs. This information is used to identify requirements. It is listed as one of the tools and techniques for the PMI process to collect requirements (section of the PMBOK, 5th edition).

Focus groups can also be used in other contexts to evaluate things like products, advertising campaigns, and attitudes (for instance in political campaigns). In addition to initial requirements gathering, focus groups can test the implementation, find errors, or brainstorm ways to address issues or risks.
