This workshop is specifically designed to develop the skills necessary to generate use cases that capture and express requirements robustly, effectively and unambiguously.

Focusing on the authoring of high quality, robust use cases; the course demonstrates how the use case text is augmented through effective use of UML notation.

The workshop is delivered within the context of an iterative and incremental lifecycle, using the UML toolset of your choice, and is supported throughout by a domain specific case study. With the support of the consultant, the delegates are then given the opportunity to address their own project requirements.
