Abstract

This position paper summarises a project which is concerned with understanding the software process from a sociological viewpoint. We believe that understanding the social factors inherent in the software process will allow us to derive new requirements for software tools for process support. One such tool, (the Designer's Notepad) intended to support informal design activities is briefly described.
