Ivar Jacobson International Launches New Agile Use Cases Training

LONDON, June 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Ivar Jacobson International (IJI), a global consulting company, today announced that it has released a new online training programme that will equip learners with the skills and techniques necessary to effectively elicit, communicate, and manage requirements using the new generation of agile use cases (Use-Case 2.0) for their agile programmes and frameworks like SAFe®, Scrum at Scale and Disciplined Agile.

Ivar Jacobson, the creator of Use Cases, discusses the importance of the technique in agile development.

Dr. Ivar Jacobson first developed the technique of use cases to capture requirements while working at Ericsson. They then became widely adopted after the success of his book "Use-Case-Driven Approach." Since then, the phrase 'use cases' has become ubiquitous and has made its way into all sorts of everyday conversations.

Just as software development methodologies have evolved to be lean and agile; use cases has evolved to help teams sharpen their focus on the delivery of value.

"The latest ideas, particularly the concept of 'slicing' use cases, allows it to be used for small agile development teams producing applications," explained Dr. Ivar Jacobson, Chairman of Ivar Jacobson. "More importantly, Use-Case 2.0 seamlessly scales up to large projects producing the most complex of systems, which is where many teams struggle to use other agile requirements techniques like user stories. Use-Case 2.0 provides all the benefits of user stories with the ability to scale when necessary and easily see how all the requirements relate to each other across all kinds of systems – hardware, software and peopleware."

Use-Case 2.0 is light, agile and lean and JI's new Use-Case 2.0 online learning course is the only use case course on the market equipping learners with requirement skills to work more in-tune with agile teams.

"Agile use cases has turned out to be the perfect solution for replacing or improving customer journey and story mapping, to provide the business context, functional scope and just-in-time value-driven scenarios that fuel a prioritized backlog for agile delivery. My client, a major US bank, has found IJI's online course to be an excellent way to augment hands-on training and also to on-board new analysts," said Bernie Clark, Principal Consultant of Scivian LLC. "The experience is user-friendly and delivered in bite-sized chunks that are easy to consume. The student is taken through the fundamentals of creating high-quality use cases before being introduced to the key slicing technique of Use-Case 2.0 that supports agile development. I highly recommend this course."
