Intentional modeling, capturing the goals of stakeholders, has been proposed as a means of early system elicitation and design for an enterprise, focusing on social and strategic requirements. It is often assumed that more utility can be gained from goal models by applying explicit analysis over models, but little work has been devoted to understand how or why this occurs. In this paper, the authors test existing hypotheses concerning interactive goal model analysis via multiple case studies. Previous results have indicated that such analysis increases model iteration, prompts further elicitation, and improves domain knowledge.
