Whilst it is considered a good practice to focus Requirements Engineering on current stakeholder needs, the high costs implied by requirements changes and the emergence of the Autonomic Computing paradigm raised the need for dealing with issues that are not currently requirements but that may come to be in the future. This work shows how foresight techniques can be used for requirements elicitation, and discusses the impacts of studying the future to that requirements engineering activity. In particular, it addresses the use of the Futures Wheel method to enrich goal models.
