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
