Joint Application Development (JAD) is a management process which helps IS work effectively with users to develop information technology solutions that really work. Its purpose is to define the project, design a solution, and monitor the project until it reaches completion.
- JAD (Joint Application Development) is a methodology that involves the client or end user in the design and development of an application, through a succession of collaborative workshops called JAD sessions.
- The JAD approach, in comparison with the more traditional practice, is thought to lead to faster development times and greater client satisfaction, because the client is involved throughout the development process. In comparison, in the traditional approach to systems development, the developer investigates the system requirements and develops an application, with client input consisting of a series of interviews.
Who do you invite in a JAD session?
- Sponsor – The one who provides resources and support for the project
- Business Users – There are the users of the system being designed
- System Analysts- they provide non-technical explanations to help JAD members understand and fully utilize the technology available.
- Technical Lead – The person who leads the development/coding effort.
