Gabriela N. Aranda, Aurora Vizcaíno, Alejandra Cechich, Mario Piattini
2008 Workshop em Engenharia de Requisitos  
Considering that effective communication would help reduce misunderstandings among stakeholders, and therefore help achieve more committed requirements, we propose here a methodology for global requirements  ...  Global Software Development (GSD) challenges current practices for requirements elicitation because some difficulties to achieve effective communication are aggravated by cultural diversity and the impossibility  ...  The rest of the paper is organized as follows: in Section 2 we discuss the main problems that affect a distributed requirement elicitation process and propose the basis for a methodology for global requirement  ...
