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

Verifying and validating requirements early on will help ensure your team develops a solid set of project requirements with minimal change as the project progresses.

A good verification process not only weeds out the requirements you don’t need, but further identifies missing requirements you do need.

Requirements verification is critical to maximizing successful outcomes and aids the business analyst in determining when a design is complete.

Learn:

  • What requirements verification is and what are its benefits
  • Why we need verified requirements
  • How to plan for verification and execution
  • Requirement verification attributes
  • Verification methods and modeling

The webinar will explore the four fundamental methods for requirements verification: Inspection, Demonstration, Testing and Analysis. You will be taken on a journey through the life of a requirement.
