Best Practices for Software Projects: JAD Sessions

Member Submitted

Most of us have worked on projects that were not well organized and the requirements gathering process dragged on for months, commonly referred to as "analysis paralysis". Joint Application Development (JAD) sessions are a set of intense meetings held off-site where executives, developers, and end-users define the exact requirements needed by a software solution. By holding JAD sessions, your team can more quickly define requirements, get executive buy-in, eliminate irrelevant requirements, and reduce political jockeying between team members.
