  • Try story telling to elicit typical user/system interactions, i.e. use cases from your users.
  • Find out about the important classes and their interdependencies:
    • Organize sessions with CRC cards: Class Responsibility Collaboration and
    • Do lexical analysis on business documents
  • Prioritize requirements / use cases in a group with MoSCoW-rules: Must / Should have / Could have / Won't have this time around
  • Schedule features / use cases in timeboxes


    • Ivar Jacobson
    • Martin Fowler (Very readable and small book: UML Distilled)
    • DSDM
