When teaching about requirements elicitation, I do speak of brainstorming as one of the ways of conducting a meeting. Meetings are one of the key techniques for conducting requirements elicitation.

I have recently conducted a web survey on brainstorm and found some interesting posts. I am sharing what I have found:
  1. An article at the The Heart of Innovation.
  2. A trade press article that is easy to ready.
  3. Donald Clark introduction to the topic.
  4. A vendor description of the technique.
  5. Last, but not least: a chapter of a book where you can find a real example of the use of brainstorming. Of the notes cited above, this one is the only one that describes how brainstorming did solve a real problem.

Dear Prof Leite
Noting your combination of requirements and brainstorming the site and blog 'Welcome to the QUAD':

- introduced below may be of interest to you, your faculty colleagues and students? Hodges' model can help achieve socio-technical assurance...

Originally created in the UK by Brian E Hodges (Ret.) at Manchester Metropolitan University -

Hodges' Health Career - Care Domains - Model [h2cm]

- can help map health, social care and OTHER issues, problems and solutions. The model takes a situated and multi-contextual view across four knowledge domains:

* Interpersonal;
* Sociological;
* Empirical;
* Political.

Our links pages cover each care (knowledge) domain e.g. SCIENCES:


Thank you for your time and best wishes with your plans.

Should you organise any informatics conferences please advise I would be happy help publicise the same.

Many thanks.
