Ensuring that organizational IT is in alignment with and provides support for an organization's business strategy is critical to business success. Despite this, business strategy and strategic alignment issues are all but ignored in the requirements engineering research literature. We present B-SCP, a requirements engineering framework for organizational IT(More)
We present an integrated approach to requirements engineering for organizational IT to help ensure IT-business strategy alignment. A single, unified model to enable validation of system requirements against business strategy is proposed. We use VMOST analysis to deconstruct business strategy. We then model strategy using a goal-oriented requirements(More)
Background Several researchers have criticized the standards of performing and reporting empirical studies in software engineering. In order to address this problem, Jedlitschka and Pfahl have produced reporting guidelines for controlled experiments in software engineering. They pointed out that their guidelines needed evaluation. We agree that guidelines(More)

SoSyM Improving the Quality of Use Case Descriptions • Use cases popular and widespread. • Little to guide the user, particularly for the description. • Problems of structure and comprehension (and the importance of both requirements and specification). • Previous studies suggest improvements when guidelines applied. • Suggestion that application of(More)
Achieving higher quality software is one of the aims sought by development organizations worldwide. Establishing defect free statements of requirements is a key strategy for achieving improvements in quality. In this paper we present the results of a laboratory experiment that explored the application of a checklist in the process of inspecting use case(More)
