Description: In Agile, we create User Stories to capture the customer's requirements.  But are there other tools we can use to help our customer understand and describe their wants and needs, their business environment, and their business processes?
In this workshop, we will explore new tools to help a fictitious Eye Care Center design a workflow automation system.  We'll help our customer create a product vision, construct a context diagram, and define their to-be process - all to help us build a more complete and accurate product backlog.  If you are looking for ideas to get your projects off to a great start, then this is the meeting for you.
