UML - Business Use Case Question 

 Hello,

Are external systems not depicted in business use case diagrams?  I'm asking b/c I'm looking at an example where the external system is in the system use case package and role map, but not the business use case.

Thanks

Can you clarify whether or not you make a distinction between a "use case" and a "business use case?"

Re: UML - Business Use Case Question 

 An actor that interacts with a use case (business or technical) can be a user role or another system. The system can be one in your organisation or outside the organisation. The point is it isn't the system (manual, computer based or mixed) you are defining.

What Does Success Look Like? I challenge Business Analysts to view requestors’ requirements as an opportunity to define success. Too often, teams fall into a trap focused on requestors’ prescriptive requirements that are meant to serve as roadmaps for developers and testers. When you limit your view of requirements to this prescripti...

They say the best criteria of Business Analyst’s success are a happy customer (business) and a happy engineering team. But what does it mean? How can we break down happiness and measure it? These are precisely the questions my 8 BAs team and I tried to answer this year. The result was a surprisingly efficient pair of surveys we developed and ...
