Abstract

One of the key tasks in Enterprise Modeling is to analyze the current situation and existing challenges in the enterprise with the active participation of domain experts and decision makers. In this respect, elicitation approaches such as interviews, observations, participatory modeling workshops, or document analysis are fundamental instruments. Starting with an overview of the most important elicitation approaches in Enterprise Modeling and some advice on preparing for elicitation, the chapter introduces selected elicitation approaches.
