Conventional team processes in software engineering are typically designed to support face-to-face interactions among stakeholders. This paradigm has changed and distributed software development (DSE) becomes a dominant approach in many settings. Despite the fact that distributed software engineering is inevitable in today's software engineering practice there are still many unsolved issues. This paper reports our research in distributed and mobile requirement negotiation. We describe the EasyWinWin (EWW) negotiation approach and identify issues in face-to-face negotiations and discuss how we aim to overcome these with distributed and mobile tools. We also report the results of an empirical exploration study examining the usability of our tools.
