Use-Case 2.0 - The Lightness of User Stories with the Power of Modeling

Keynote Address from Use-Case 2.0 Conference

Ivar Jacobson delivered the keynote address at the April 2015 Use-Case 2.0 Conference in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

Use-Case 2.0 is the new generation of use cases - light, agile and lean - inspired by user stories, Scrum and Kanban. Use-Case 2.0 has all the popular values from the past - not just supporting requirements but also architecture, design, test, and user experience - but it is also instrumental in business modelling and software reuse. Use-Case 2.0 has been inspired by user stories to assist with backlogs a la Scrum and one-piece flow with Kanban. In this video Dr. Jacobson presents the new use cases and compares use cases with user stories and explains when one or the other technique is the better one.
