ABSTRACT
The rhetorical question "do we practice what we preach?" still seems to be relevant, even a decade after it appeared on the requirements engineering research landscape. New perspectives from various seasoned professionals from India address the question yet again. The Web extra at http://youtu.be/QtJcaibyetw is an audio podcast of Requirements column editor Jane Cleland-Huang speaking with Tony Gorschek, a professor of software engineering at the Blekinge Institute of Technology with more than 10 years of experience as a CTO, senior executive consultant, engineer, chief architect, and product manager, about technology transfer in the requirements engineering field.
