Requirements Modeling & Analysis is one of the most important and often most neglected activities of the software development life cycle. A good requirements model fosters communication between the business and IT by enabling them to share a common vision of the system’s solution prior to implementation. This will ensure that the systems meets the business needs, can be delivered on time, and have the level of quality and flexibility to easily accommodate future business needs.

This workshop will provide your team with the practical skills necessary to effectively, and efficiently capture, model and analyze user-centric requirements with use cases. Your will leave understanding how to communicate better with business experts, systems analysts, designers and developers, and create use case-driven user-centric requirements which naturally translate into system designs.

You will learn how to identify and translate business goals and needs into system features, and use them to derive both functional and nonfunctional (technical) system requirements. You will learn how to effectively apply use cases. This workshop will also provide guidance on how to avoid the common difficulties that teams experience when starting a project with use cases, such as capturing the right level of detail and the complexities involved with applying and managing use cases.
