Thursday 30 from 14:30 until 16:30

(This is a hands-on lab with limited capacity)

We speak about models - but models are abstractions from our reality. We leave things out. But when can you use which model? When to use Business Model Canvas, when should I use Domain Storytelling, when should I use BPMN or UML? Models can be used to show AND to understand something. They must be tailored to the audience as well as to the questions to be answered. In the session, attendees will learn when to use which model along the development process and which model are not suitable for certain situations. To do so, the attendees create their own models using a given sample.


The participants should have some device where they can work with a remote whiteboard (Miro) - might be a tablet or a laptop.
