If I'm presented with inadequate information about the scope of the project, I gleefully accept it as a license to make all of the decisions, substituting my own skill and judgement for that of project managers, engineers, programmers and pointy-haired bosses who have little or no grasp of what constitutes good documentation.

It is this process of proding the developers (and/or SMEs) that I am
asking about.

That was not at all clear from the conversation on this list that I've been
following. There are myriad styles of gathering information. I would
recommend consulting a few books that treat how to do so if you have no
applicable experience in conducting research.
