34856Re: User Stories vs. Agile Use Cases
- Dec 1, 2008I learned long ago that there are people who will only learn a new
tool or technique when faced with abject failure. Short of that, they
say -- no matter what difficulties they encounter along the way --
"See, I told my tool box was sufficient for the job."
Best wishes with your tool box. May you one day learn to spot the
empty spaces in it.
