There are a myriad of requirements elicitation methods. They include brainstorming, document analysis, focus groups, interface analysis, interviews, observation, prototyping, requirements workshops, survey/questionnaire), and so on. It’s doubtful that any single elicitation technique will always work for you. “Although some may advocate . . . just one elicitation technique . . . it is generally accepted that an individual requirements elicitation technique or approach cannot possibly be suitable for all projects.” But obviously, you can’t do all of even the most popular ones when you unearth requirements for every project. So how do you decide which will give you the most bang for your buck (limited time), and why?
