Continuous, requirements-driven support for organizations, networks and communities
Next to requirements engineering, business process reengineering and organizational impact analysis have been discussed in Yu's original thesis as application areas of i*. In our research, we elaborate and combine these three fields by aiming at continuous, requirements-driven support for organizations, networks, and communities. While i* is well suited to capture the static relationships and rationales in these cases, extensions have been introduced to cope with the dynamics of these forms of organization, such as delegation discussions, evolution, the growth (or shrinkage) of trust, etc. We integrate a dedicated speech act perspective and provide a mapping to ConGolog, a logic-based high-level process modelling environment, to enable simulations. Analysis means are extended furthermore to include dynamic social network analysis.
