Dahlstedt, Åsa G.; Karlsson, Lena LU ; Persson, Anne; Natt och Dag, Johan LU and Regnell, Björn LU (2003) 1st International Workshop on COTS and Product Software: Why Requirements are so Important (RECOTS’03)
Abstract
This paper reports on some preliminary results

from the first stage of an interview survey, focusing

on current practices and challenges in market-driven

RE. The interviews are analysed based on the

characteristics of market-driven RE presented in the

literature.

The interviews correspond largely with the

literature. Identified discrepancies compared with

the literature concerns the time-to-market attribute

and documentation of requirements. Two major

groupings among the participating companies were

found. The RE processes of one of these groupings

are focused on facilitating the activities fundamental

in market-driven RE,... (More)
This paper reports on some preliminary results

from the first stage of an interview survey, focusing

on current practices and challenges in market-driven

RE. The interviews are analysed based on the

characteristics of market-driven RE presented in the

The interviews correspond largely with the

literature. Identified discrepancies compared with

the literature concerns the time-to-market attribute

and documentation of requirements. Two major

groupings among the participating companies were

found. The RE processes of one of these groupings

are focused on facilitating the activities fundamental

in market-driven RE, e.g. the release planning

activity, while the other is more document-driven.

The results of the interviews also include some ideas

on how market-driven RE activities may be

performed. (Less)
