Exploitation of Synergies between Requirements Engineering and Design Thinking
Due to various technological, organizational, market and economic changes, it is often difficult to discover and appropriately handle rapidly changing requirements. This circumstance has shown to greatly benefit from design thinking, which is a human-centered, solution-focused approach to innovation that integrates human needs with technical possibilities and business requirements. On the other hand, Requirements Engineering has aided in software development for quite some time and while the synergies of Design Thinking with Requirements Engineering are apparent, their exact relations are not clear. This thesis aims to essentially bridge this particular gap. Starting with an extensive literature review on Design Thinking, this thesis delves into the detailed principles, methods and artifacts involved in the design thinking process. As a next step, the results from the literature review are then used to build a taxonomy that further clarifies the current trend in design thinking and helps in analyzing the common aspects of both design thinking and requirements engineering. This is followed by another literature review focused on these common aspects that link design thinking and requirements engineering which further provides a refined view of the matter and helps analyzing what can requirements engineering learn and benefit from design thinking. The thesis finally provides a rational insight on how customer-oriented developmental solutions can be greatly enhance from such a synergy between design thinking and requirements engineering.
