dc.description.abstractIt is essential to consider specifications and design when examining the requirements for new software for stakeholders and software engineers. The Huri Whakatau project investigates current relevant requirements and design techniques to understand the Māori (Indigenous people of Aotearoa) demographic to identify any relevant gaps for examining requirements. The process has been tested by investigating existing internationally accepted groups and their methodologies to attempt to adapt a new methodology for Māori groups. In the context of the research, an accepted group is defined as a group which is not from a developing country or Indigenous group. The research was able to identify three untested methodologies; this involved conducting an empirical study as a part of the experiment. The decision was to transform the internationally accepted soft systems methodology (SSM) with groups in a user study. Comparing previously recorded satisfaction using the technique and the use of Māori techniques determined that SSM would be the strongest candidate. When testing SSM with participants, overall, there was a higher level of satisfaction with Māori participants using the new proposed adapted Māori approach as opposed to the internationally accepted groups.
