Abstract: Many studies suggest that failures in information system (IS) development occur due to problems with the requirement engineering (RE) process. To improve the RE process, organisations should use RE good practices (REGP) as standard because it leads to product success. However, implementing RE processes and convincing people to apply REGP can be a considerable challenge. The purpose of this research is to identify factors affecting the willingness of RE professionals to implement REGP. A model developed by Steijn et al. (2010) was used as a basis in the development of a conceptual model. Data collection was conducted through online questionnaire with respondents consisting of IS managers, analysts, system developers and key users from 75 private and state-owned companies in Java (Indonesia). The partial least square (PLS) approach was used for hypothesis testing. The results indicate that subjective norm, stakeholder relationship and awareness have a positive impact on the willingness to implement REGP.
Keywords: requirements engineering; good practice; willingness to implement; exploratory factor analysis; EFA; partial least squares; PLS; information systems; conceptual modelling; implementation failure.
