"User Requirements with Lego" by Julia Dellnitz and Jan Gentsch 


The success of a software development project largely depends on how effective customers and developers communicate their ideas and their possibilities.

Many teams aim at developing a full and complete set of requirements - only to be prepared for everything that might happen. But experience shows, that many key requirements emerge during implementation, that „known“ requirements tend to become the tricky ones and that some of them just hide from analytical approaches. Often enough these types of requirements are the ones that make the product innovative.

We demonstrate how developers and stakeholders can discover hidden or emergent requirements using methods and materials from LEGO ® Serious Play ®. This approach is  a creative addition to analytical methods and also supports the team development process fostering agile ideas and values.


The session is based on the URL ( User Requirements with Lego ®) by of NewMinE and , University of Lugano, Switzerland developed under a CC -BY -SA 3.0 license.
