Domain Storytelling—Understanding Your Users by Drawing Pictures

Domain Storytelling is a collaborative modeling method. It brings together domain experts and development teams and helps them to understand the domain of a software system, find boundaries, and to talk about requirements.

Domain Storytelling means that we let domain experts tell us stories about their tasks. While listening, we record the stories using a pictographic language.

The domain experts can see immediately whether we understand their story correctly. After very few stories, we are able to talk about the people, tasks, tools, work items, and events in that domain.

In this session we will look at a practical example by using the auditorium as an interview partner.
