The three most common techniques used today for capturing requirements are Feature Writing, Use Cases and User Stories. If you are a requirements analyst and have not mastered at least one of these techniques, it is vital that you do so. Mastering all three is even better.


In this session we will look at all three techniques and understand the real differences between them. There are some similarities, but there are far more differences than overlaps. We will also discuss when it is best to use which of these three powerful techniques.
