For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Use cases are sometimes formally defined, true. Often they're not. In
an agile environment, if you're doing it right, the use cases should
be clear from the user story and acceptance criteria.
Without a use case, a feature is useless. If nobody can come up with a
use case for something, probably it shouldn't be documented or exposed
to the customer.
