Maiden, N., Gizikis, A. & Robertson, S. (2004). Provoking creativity: Imagine what your requirements could be like. IEEE Software, 21(05), pp. 68-75. doi: 10.1109/ms.2004.1331305


Requirements engineering research, with its focus on elicitation, analysis and management, offers little to support the creation or invention of requirements. This paper reports the use of innovative techniques to encourage creative thinking about requirements for an air traffic control system. It describes results from 3 creativity workshops and lessons learned to integrate creativity workshops into structured requirements processes.
