A practical approach to goal modelling for time-constrained projects

By Kenneth Duncan Boness, Marc Bartsch, Stephen Cook and Rachel Harrison

Abstract

Goal modelling is a well known rigorous method for analysing\ud problem rationale and developing requirements. Under the pressures typical of time-constrained projects its benefits are not accessible. This is because of the effort and time needed to create the graph and because reading the results can be difficult owing to the effects of crosscutting concerns. Here we introduce an adaptation of KAOS to meet the needs of rapid turn around and clarity. The main aim is to help the stakeholders gain an insight into the larger issues that might be overlooked if they make a premature start into implementation. The method emphasises the use of obstacles, accepts under-refined goals and has\ud new methods for managing crosscutting concerns and strategic decision making. It is expected to be of value to agile as well as traditional processes
