Abstract

This paper illustrates ten lightweight SA&D tools that could support initial deliberations about system requirements and subsequent sanity checking for high-level designs and for proposed functions and features. The tools are as relevant to agile development as to other approaches related to work systems in organizations. A brief introduction to the work system perspective leads to a section that illustrates ten SA&D tools based directly on work system theory or its extensions. The tools are applied to the same situation, a hiring system at a technical firm. These tools are not part of established SA&D pedagogy or practice. This paper’s ideas provide a context for comparing the focus of established SA&D methods and tools with a broader view of SA&D that engages managers and other business professionals more fully.

Ten Lightweight Systems Analysis and Design Tools Based on Work System Theory and Its Extensions

This paper illustrates ten lightweight SA&D tools that could support initial deliberations about system requirements and subsequent sanity checking for high-level designs and for proposed functions and features. The tools are as relevant to agile development as to other approaches related to work systems in organizations. A brief introduction to the work system perspective leads to a section that illustrates ten SA&D tools based directly on work system theory or its extensions. The tools are applied to the same situation, a hiring system at a technical firm. These tools are not part of established SA&D pedagogy or practice. This paper’s ideas provide a context for comparing the focus of established SA&D methods and tools with a broader view of SA&D that engages managers and other business professionals more fully.
