up to 40 participants — these should be the same participants who were present in the Introduction Lecture and the Fundamentals Workshop! You'll want to avoid having participants come in late, because each step in this process builds on the last.
In this workshop, we dive into the infamous Requirements Round of the ORCA process. We tackle objects, relationships, CTAs, and attributes at high-fidelity: using words and diagrams, not pixels. This second round of ORCA helps us wrangle the complexity inherent in our domain. We'll get into the nitty gritty of requirements in a way that's visual, thorough, efficient, and organized. And fun, believe it or not!
You're team will learn:
- How to craft an Object Guide — a glossary on steroids that will get everyone on the same page, using the same words for the most important concepts in your system
- The art of My Cat Saving Fire Department. (Yes, that's a mnemonic.) You'll learn to examine nested objects through the lens of mechanics, cardinality, sorting, filtering, and dependency.
- How to create Object-Oriented User Stories by building on the CTA Matrix we created during Discovery
- Create meta-metadata for each attribute: looking at data sources, default values, and role-based permissions.
This workshop is not for the faint of heart! Put on the coffee!
