Course Description


This is an intensive, hands-on and interactive workshop that teaches students the critical skills and techniques necessary to perform effective real-world user requirements capture and documentation. The course provides students with a thorough grounding in using the industry standard “Use Case” techniques popularized by Ivar Jacobson and other Object Oriented practitioners.

The course begins with a high level overview of modern systems and how their unique characteristics affect the requirements gathering and documentation process. After an introduction to some basic concepts relevant to gathering requirements, students are shown how the requirements capture process fits into and feeds into the industry standard SDLCs, (specifically, an SDLC that is iterative, incremental and use case driven).

Course Length: 2 Days
Course Tuition: $790 (US)
