Use Case 2.0

Key Takeaways

  • Use Case 2.0 expand on the ideas embodied in user stories
  • Some up-front design is needed in all software development projects
  • For any product you need the skeleton system that has the key requirements embodied in it early on
  • Any system should be able to be represented by between 10 and 20 key use cases

An Interview with Ivar Jacobson by BluePrint

Adam Lacombe from BluePrint sat down with Ivar Jacobson, the father of component architecture, aspect-oriented software development, UML, RUP, and a multitude of other principles that have shaped the current software development landscape, to discuss his book Use-Case 2.0 and the role of use cases in Agile development practices.

Use cases, as argued by Jacobson, “include the techniques that are provided by user stories, but offer significantly more for larger systems, larger teams, and more complex and demanding development projects than user stories alone. They are as lightweight as user stories but can also scale in a smooth and structured way to incorporate as much detail as needed. Most importantly, they drive and connect many other aspects of software development.”
