However, given dozens of processes and dozens of elicitation methods, this endeavor proved to be too cumbersome and would have produced a set of prescriptions rather than a descriptive means of identifying the appropriate elicitation method(s) for a particular context and purpose. Additionally, through the literature review, a categorization of elicitation methods as either generative or evaluative was presented, making the matching exercise unnecessary.
Instead, by examining the theory and practices, several gaps were uncovered. ...
