Use-Case 2.0 Conversion

Use the Latest Use-Case Approach for Your Agile Projects

This one day class is intended to introduce experienced use-case modelers to Use-Case 2.0. It builds on the current state of the art practice to present an evolution of the use-case technique that we call Use-Case 2.0. Although the term suggests a new version of use cases, it does not refer to an update of the UML, but rather to a set of cumulative changes in the ways software developers and business analysts succeed with use cases.

Training info

Course overview

The course focuses on how to use use cases in an agile and scalable fashion. The course starts with a simulation where the delegates will be directly exposed to the innovations at the heart of Use-Case 2.0. This is then followed by a workshop where any issues arising from the use of Use-Case 2.0 during the simulation will be addressed. Throughout the class, common problems and their solutions will be explored. Reference examples and exercise solutions are also supplied.
