In the last years, global software development has grown as a business model and this trend is accentuated. Benefits of these new processes of building distributed software are constrained by difficulties associated with the geographic and cultural distance between team members. In this context, the software requirement elicitation, key activity in the software engineering process, supports perhaps the greatest challenges due to high communicational flow required at this stage of software process. This paper presents a preliminary comparative study of the effectiveness of traditional elicitation techniques applied to distributed scenarios of software construction.
