Use-Case 2.0 Introduction

Use-Case 2.0

An introductory class on using use-cases for agile projects following the technique Use-Case 2.0. This is an Ivar Jacobson International training, brought to you by DiVetro, the official partner of Ivar Jacobson International in The Netherlands.

This course is ideal for participants who have no prior knowledge of agile and the use of use cases. Participants with prior knowledge of agile and no prior knowledge of use cases or participants with no prior knowledge of working agile with use cases will get more value from our Use Case – Agility Included training.


This two-day class will equip delegates with the skills and techniques necessary to effectively elicit, communicate, and manage their requirements using use cases. In particular they will learn how to drive agile projects using lightweight use cases and use case slices. The course starts with a simulation where the delegates will build a product backlog using a pre-supplied set of use cases. The simulation provides hands-on experience that serves as a foundation for the rest of the course. Delegates will then learn how to quickly and simply build a use case model, and prepare their use cases in an agile fashion. Throughout the class, common problems and their solutions will be explored. Reference examples and exercise solutions are also supplied.
