Method engineering approaches are often based on the assumption that method users are able to explicitly express their situational method requirements. However, similar to software requirements, situational method requirements are often vague and hard to explicate. In this paper we address the issue of involving method users early during method configuration. This is done through borrowing ideas from user-centred design and prototyping and implementing them on the method engineering layer in a
