Nowadays, the successful development of software products depends on a good understanding of the system requirements. The i* framework offers expressive models to capture social and intentional characteristics in an organi-zational context. However, there is a well-known gap between intentional i* models and other conceptual models used for software development. In order to reduce this gap, we have developed a transformation process to obtain from i* models an appropriate input for the OO-Method Model Driven approach. In this paper, we present the problems detected from the application of this transforma-tion process and the possible solutions, which are oriented to improve the alignment of i* and OO-Method conceptual models.
