Whitepaper: Empowering End-Users: A Pattern-Centered Groupware Development Process

by Telematica InstituutJan 01, 2008

In this paper the authors advocate the Oregon Software Development Process (OSDP) that is based on observations made during The Oregon Experiment. The OSDP fosters end-user participation, pattern-oriented transfer of design knowledge, piecemeal growth in form of short iterations and frequent diagnosis and reflection for improving the application. End-users are empowered to better understand development possibilities for groupware and to act as an expert. This paper?s focal point is on the relation of OSDP with groupware design.
