Inventing Requirements with Creativity Support Tools Conference Paper uri icon


  • [Context and motivation] Creativity is indispensable for software systems to deliver progress and competitive advantage for stakeholders. Yet it is rarely supported in requirements processes. [Question/problem] This paper investigated integration of two software tools, one for generating requirements with scenarios, the other for supporting people to think creatively while finding and collecting information. The effectiveness of the integration was investigated. [Principal ideas/results] The technical integration is described, and an evaluation is reported. [Contribution] Results reveal some effect on the novelty of the requirements generated, and have implications for the design of tools to support creative requirements processes. 2009 Springer Berlin Heidelberg.
