Use Case Essentials with UML

Why take this course?

After completing this course, you will be able to
  • apply Use Cases in clear requirements that are easier for stakeholders to understand and verify.
  • communicate effectively with the development team using widely accepted UML terminology.
  • facilitate requirements gathering sessions by applying the latest developments in Use Case Technology.
  • model high-level requirements with Use Case diagrams.
  • document detailed requirements with text that utilizes the Use Case Description Template.
  • link other artifacts to Use Cases, such as business entities, non-functional requirements and activity diagrams.

Get the skills you need to encapsulate business requirements, models and definitions into Use Case deliverables. You'll engage with other students in lectures and discussions covering all aspects of Use Cases as a business analysis tool. Through integrated workshops based on a real-life case study, you will learn how to provide Use Cases that users can employ for validation and documentation, and that form a rigorous foundation for quality assurance and testing as well as trustworthy, understandable specifications for systems design.

Who should attend?

Business and I/S analysts who must define business requirements. Others who will benefit include business users who will be explaining business requirements to software developers, and Systems Analysts expanding their role into the business realm.

Any prerequisites?

Some exposure to the business analysis discipline would be helpful, as would a general understanding of the IT project life cycle.
