Abstract: Requirements are critical for the success of software projects. Requirements are practically difficult to produce, as the hardest stage of building a software system is to decide what the system should do. Moreover, requirements errors are expensive to fix in the later phases of the software development life cycle. The rapidly changing business environment is highly challenging traditional Requirements Engineering (RE) practices. Most of the software development organizations are working in such dynamic environment, as a result, either by or without their awareness agile methodologies are adopted in various phases of their software development cycles. The aim of this paper is to investigate the adherence degree of agile RE practices in various software development organizations that are classifying themselves as adopting traditional (i.e. non-agile) software development methodologies. An approach is proposed for achieving this aim and it is applied on five different projects from four different organizations. The result shows that even the non-agile software development organizations are applying agile RE practices by different adherence degrees.
