Abstract: Abstract: Requirements engineering has grown into a focus topic for most software-dependent companies. Both outsourcing and in-house development call for effective elicitation of requirements, and for rich communication between customers and software developers. Organizational learning is, therefore, a natural complement when we discuss requirements engineering practice and its improvement. Through organizational learning, processes and tools are systematically improved, reflection and explicit learning becomes part of the company culture. Many companies are still struggling to reach this goal.
The LSO+RE workshop has provided a forum for discussing the intersection of requirements engineering and learning software organizations in depth. This article introduces the topic and the articles from the LSO+RE workshop that have been selected for this special issue of J.UKM.
