Requirements Elicitation Techniques

Hello everyone,

When it comes to "Requirements Elicitation Techniques" interviews and survey methods are given great importance but somehow i feel those are general methods which does not correlate in the field of computing. Are observation methods like protocol analysis, social analysis and ethnography much better then traditional interview and survey method?

Please share your views which one worked better for you.

Thank you

design exercises and/or portfolio review during interview

Hi all, Have any of you ever given design problems/exercises to someone interviewing for an Interaction design position? If so, how well did that work, and how did you come up with the design problems? It seems that the design problems cannot require a lot of background about the users or specialized domain knowledge since we have limited time with each candidate.

One person has suggested to me that reviewing a candidate's portfolio would be a better approach. I was thinking a combined approach might be useful. What do you think?

All ideas and experiences welcome!
