Investigating the impact of stakeholders' commitment on requirements elicitation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Requirements Elicitation (RE) consists of collecting requirements for a future system. It involves engineers who are eliciting information, and stakeholders who are involved in the project to provide information. This research note aims to stimulate research about the impact of stakeholders' commitment on RE. We define commitment, discuss how it can be measured during RE, and present a first exploratory study that we conducted to build a prototype "commitment matrix". The matrix aims to clarify what engineers may expect during RE when involving stakeholders who are more or less committed.
