8. What is JAD? What is participatory design? 9. Joint Application Design (JAD) is a group process involving users and systems development staff in which all parties discuss the needs for an information system and reach a shared understanding. Participatory Design (PD) is a systems development approach that originated in northern Europe in which users and the improvement in their work lives is the central focus. 10. What is RAD? How does it compare to the typical SDLC? Rapid application development (RAD) is a systems development methodology created to decrease the time needed to design and implement an information system. One of the hallmarks of RAD is extensive user involvement through traditional JAD sessions as well as evaluation of prototypes. RAD also includes integrated CASE tools and code generators.

system. One of the hallmarks of RAD is extensive user involvement through traditional JAD sessions as well as evaluation of prototypes. RAD also includes integrated CASE tools and code generators. 11. What are Agile Methodologies? Agile Methodologies promote a self-adaptive software development process. While other methodologies focus on roles that individuals play in a project team, Agile Methodologies focus more on the individual. As software is developed, the process used to develop it is refined and improved through a review process done by the development team. Agile Methodologies differ from traditional system development methodologies in that there is less focus on process and more focus on the people involved in the project.
