Use Cases – Agility included Course

An introductory class on using use cases for agile projects. This is an Ivar Jacobson International training, brought to you by DiVetro, the official partner of Ivar Jacobson International in The Netherlands. This course is ideal for participants with prior knowledge of agile and no prior knowledge of use cases or participants with no prior knowledge of working agile with use cases. Participants with no prior knowledge of agile and its principles will get more value from our Use-Case 2.0 Introduction Training.

Course overview

This one-day class will equip delegates with the skills and techniques necessary to effectively elicit, communicate, and manage their requirements using use cases. In particular, they will learn how to apply use cases in agile projects. The course starts by understanding the need for documentation. Delegates will then learn how to quickly and simply build a use-case model, and prepare their use cases in an agile fashion without losing the just-enough and just-in-time principles. Throughout the class, common problems and their solutions will be explored. Reference examples and exercise solutions are also supplied.
