Use cases and user stories are both excellent techniques for understanding what a user needs from a product.

While both have a similar purpose, use cases and user stories are not meant to be used interchangeably. That is why it’s important for a business analyst to understand the difference.

The older of the two techniques is the use case, which captures usage scenarios.

In other words, a use case documents how an individual uses a product to accomplish something of value. This technique works well for projects where functional requirements and usage scenarios must be – and can be – specified upfront. However, what if you can’t know the requirements upfront?

In a user story, the user and what they need the product to accomplish is also specified, but in contrast to use cases, at a much higher level.

Recognizing which technique is best suited to your situation is the key.

In this webinar you will learn to:

  • Determine when to apply use cases and user stories to define stakeholder requirements.
  • Elaborate use cases through scenarios.
  • Augment use cases and user stories with diagrams and visuals for better communication

Presenter: Dr. Martin Schedlbauer (LinkedIn profile) has been leading and authoring seminars and workshops in business analysis, software engineering, and project management for over twenty years. Martin, an accomplished business analysis subject matter expert, is a recognized leader in software development practices, a practicing scrum master, experienced software architect.

An effective organizational strategy should harden the intention behind mission and vision into goals that define the future direction—a direction that must reflect clear context, defined boundaries, and precise capabilities in order for programs and projects to reach intended targets with optimal success.

Business analysis transforms those aspirations into actionable scope by capturing, refining, confirming, and prioritizing the needs to be fulfilled. Only then is project management ideally positioned to achieve the reality envisioned by the strategy.

Successfully developing and implementing strategy requires a true partnership between the executives who define it and the business analysts and program and project managers who carry it out.

All parties need to understand each other’s perspectives, challenges, and roles, and then regularly interact with each other to confirm alignment, efficiency, and feasibility.

Eliminating any part of this undermines that partnership and the mutual clarity of purpose that it promotes.

In this webinar Mike Zambruski defines a concept labeled “the enterprise triple constraint” as the integration of strategy, analysis, and implementation. Without professional business analysis as the catalyst between dreams and reality, projects become exploratory initiatives burdened with avoidable cost, delay, and risk of failure.

You will leave this webinar with practical techniques for both communicating and applying the concepts presented, all based on actual experience and real results.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Learn how business analysts can leverage their role as the custodians and implementers of strategy
  2. Learn the concept of “the enterprise triple constraint,”
    • Understand how integrating its three pillars of strategy, analysis, and implementation optimizes organizational success
  3. Learn how to communicate and apply practical techniques that maximize the business analysts’ impact on their organization
