Writing Effective Agile Use Cases

PSU Professional Development Center

Portland, OR 97201, US (map)



When written well, use cases can effectively convey subtle user-system interactions. This hands-on workshop shows you how to “lighten up” use cases, write them just-in-time and use them to communicate essential system behaviors.

This workshop gives you the hands-on experience and builds the skills you will require to effectively write use cases for an agile environment.

In this hands-on workshop you will learn:

* How to effectively write use cases for agile development
* How to “tune” written descriptions to meet project specific needs
* How to break a use case into user stories and incrementally track their implementation
* Agile usability techniques—personas, Wizard of OZ prototyping
* Incremental writing—adding details when they matter
* How to write acceptance tests for use cases
* To relate use cases to features, business policies, and UI prototypes

This workshop benefits User Experience Designers, Product Owners, Business Analysts and Developers who will learn how to quickly write usage descriptions and integrate them with user prototypes and mock-ups. This workshop also benefits Business Analysts who still need to write requirements but want to “lighten” them up. Developers will benefit from knowing when to ask for usage descriptions and how to review them for “miracle” system powers.
