There are so many elicitation techniques. Which technique should we use when?

Using elicitation techniques depend on many factors, such as

  1. Complexity and risk of the project
  2. Time available
  3. Stakeholder availability
  4. Stakeholder locations
  5. Number of stakeholders
  6. Need for consensus
  7. Stakeholder familiarity with the techniques
