Joint Application Development (JAD) - JAD is a process originally developed for designing a computer-based system. It brings together business area people (users) and IT (information technology) professionals in a highly focused workshop. The advantages of JAD include a dramatic shortening of the time it takes to complete a project. It also improves the quality of the final product by focusing on the up-front portion of the development lifecycle, thus reducing the likelihood of errors that are expensive to correct later on.
