A METHODOLOGY TO FINALIZE THE REQUIREMENTS FOR A PROJECT WITH MULTIPLE STAKE- HOLDERS - Presenting Software Engineering Workshop as a Solution

Ashutosh Parashar, Selvakumaran Mannappan

Abstract

Implementing software projects for large corporations, more often than not, involves large number of stakeholders, each with their own set of requirements, which makes requirements finalization very difficult. The authors propose Solution Envisioning Workshop (SEW) as a solution and present the practice from the context of a large project executed for a European banking giant. The project had a very large and diverse set of stake-holders- around 300 member banks as the client organizations, interfacing requirements with around ten separate systems/ projects, active involvement of central departments of the organization as active stakeholders. The paper elaborates on the approach taken towards implementing the SEW, the preparatory & follow-up activities, the benefits, limitations and the lessons learnt. They conclude that the SEW approach results in creating better understanding, much faster requirement finalization. Quantitative and qualitative inputs are provided to corroborate the findings.
