re: Enough with the User Stories already! VIEW POST


What you are describing are use cases (use case documents and diagrams included). User stories are a step after the stakeholders and the developers signed off on the use case documents.

User stories are generally speaking just there for the developers. If a stakeholder is interested in a user story for some reason, you can show him the relevant use case document.


Hi Slava and thanks for the feedback.

Use Cases are also a good tool for mapping the Requirements into Specifications, I totally agree with that. However, Features and the Gherkin DSL provide a uniform syntax and a standardised way of verifying the Specifications, through a number of tools such as Cucumber, Specflow, etc. For that reason, I prefer using Features over Use Cases.
