Abstract

Eliciting requirements is one of the key aspects of the software development life cycle. Incorrect determination of the requirements can lead to the failure of the projects. Traditional waterfall method does not accommodate changing requirements easily while agile methodology welcomes the changing requirements even at the later phases of the development life cycle. The aim of the research is to improve the agile requirement elicitation process to ensure quality product is developed that aligns to the organizational strategy and its high value initiatives. Requirement elicitation process within agile projects should consider organisational actor’s strategic dependency and rationale to ensure alignment with organisational strategy. We propose to improve the requirement elicitation process by combining i*organizational models with standard Agile-Scrum methodology through a real-life health service provider scenario. The aim of our methodology is to ensure the social aspects of the organizational actor’s strategic dependency and rationale are considered. We argue the requirement process could be significantly improved by combining these two aspects; Agile-Scrum methodology will address the requirements through user stories, vision document, epics and i*organizational model will include the social aspects of the organization to reduce the gap between the project goal and organization goal.
