Unleashing the Power of Social Media in Your Requirements

Requirements Definition


This workshop will give product managers a chance to learn about (and brainstorm together) ways to use social media in their requirements elicitation process. We will review the different types of social media, briefly discuss what makes for “good” requirements, glance at recent scholarly research on the use of social media in requirements engineering, and brainstorm ways to use these new tools and platforms to make better requirements. At the end of the session, we’ll set up a Twitter hashtag, a LinkedIn Group, and a Google+ Circle (for those who have Gmail accounts) to enable us to continue and widen the conversation!
