An introduction to Domain Storytelling

Friday afternoon 14:00 - 16:00 CET (UTC+1)


Stefan Hofer and Isabella Tran


Stories are at the heart of human communication. With Domain Storytelling, domain experts and development teams visualize storytelling to transform domain knowledge into software.

In this hands-on, you will model several Domain Stories for a domain: Starting with a “big picture”, you will identify sub-domains. Then, you dive deeper into one of the sub-domains and use Domain Storytelling to design a software-supported business process. Finally, you will derive User Stories from your Domain Stories.

This hands-on is for everyone – no coding skills required! Domain Storytelling brings together domain experts, software developers, user experience designers, product owners, product managers, and business analysts.
