What type is the study? Systematic Review of Empirical Studies

The paper is a “systematic review of empirical studies concerning the usefulness of stakeholder identification methods in requirements software, and the subsequential empirical evidence gathered from those studies.” Stakeholders are those who are involved with the project with interest of how the software is to be developed. The paper forms a framework called the Stakeholder Identification Process (SIP). The paper is presented in two points of view in that it analyzes the “impact of stakeholder identification on software requirements quality” and the “practices developed to carry out this task.” The paper concludes that the SIP must take into account the impact of personality types and the roles the stakeholders may play where each “are assessed in terms of their characteristics, the knowledge needed, their influence on a project, and the relationships between stakeholders.”
