Communication, Coordination, Requirements ValidationTechniques, Global Software Development


Requirements validation activities ensure that the developers are working with a set of requirements that are a true representative of users’ intents. These techniques face challenges when employed in the global context. This paper describes a four-dimensional framework developed to analyze the communication and coordination problems faced by requirements validation techniques in a global environment. Based upon this framework, it performs a comparative analysis to identify strengths and weaknesses of the techniques in a global context and provides recommendations to increase their effectiveness in a distributed setup.
