Good business software has to be tailored to the user's professionalism and tasks. Therefore, all roles involved in software development must understand the domain and speak the language of the business: Developers, testers, product owners, project managers and requirements assessors. Domain storytelling can help build this common understanding. The often traditional divides between business and IT are narrowing.
Modelling Business Processes collaboratively
Domain storytelling means that domain experts tell stories about their domain. While we listen, we record the domain stories in front of the subject matter experts using a visual language. In this way, all participants can immediately see whether it was understood correctly. After only a few domain stories, we have already worked out the essential concepts of a domain: Actors, their tasks, their tools (e.g. IT systems and apps) and the processed work objects (e.g. documents).
What can I use Domain Storytelling for?
As an introduction to a new domain
Developing technical language, understanding work processes
Bridging technical "silos
through collaborative modelling
Finding technical cuts for software
Heuristics for good intersection of modules, microservices and bounded contexts
Designing target processes
Align workflows and software development, make changes from actual to target transparent
Document actual processes
for training manuals and formal documents such as company agreements and procedural instructions
by deriving them directly from the domain stories
Define Minimum Viable Products
by reducing the IT-supported processes to the essentials
