Conducting a Requirements Use Case Workshop


This one-day workshop covers the process, methods, steps and questions to use when facilitating a structured Use-Case driven Requirements Workshop. This is a very practical approach that makes it quick and easy to discover, describe and document Use Cases directly with your stakeholders. More than 50% of this workshop is devoted to hands-on group work, individual presentation and feedback assessments using a common case exercise.
