We have recently started to focus on use cases, one can find many examples
for templates online (for instance
http://www.bridging-the-gap.com/what-is-a-use-case/)

For me the most important aspect of use cases is that they tell the
developers a little about how the system will actually be used. From a
business requirements document it is often difficult the get the "bigger
picture", use cases can be of great help here.
