Workshop: I Write Use Cases...Do You?
Use cases are often used to support solution requirements. It is a widely used business analysis technique used to explain the requirement in more detail by describing the actions and responses between one or more actors and the system under discovery. This workshop will look at the components of use cases, value of use cases, when they can add value to the project, and distinguishes between business and system use cases.
This workshop from the BA Knowledge Academy takes a deep dive into the use cases, use case diagrams and scenarios; and how to write them. It looks at multiple approaches to developing and documenting use cases. This workshop is aligned the A Guide to the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK Guide) version 3. It shows the business analysis practitioner how to use this tool to build an excellent business relationship with project stakeholders to work toward a positive experience for everyone involved.

Annual General Meeting and Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony
The Bluegrass IIBA Chapter will host its Annual General Meeting (AGM) and induct the third class of professionals into the Bluegrass Business Analysis Hall of Fame (BBAHoF). The AGM will look at what the Chapter has accomplished in the past year in relation to its strategic plan, its community outreach efforts, relationships it has built and inform participants of the strategic plan for the coming year. There are transformational changes happening in the global business analysis community, we will look at how the Bluegrass IIBA Chapter will bring those changes to the Bluegrass business analysis community.
The Bluegrass Business Analysis Hall of Fame recognizes those from the community that have made a significant individual contribution to the advancement of business analysis as a profession within the Bluegrass region. Nominations were made from the community knowing that inductees do not have to have an affiliation with the Bluegrass IIBA Chapter or IIBA; they just must to have made a personal contribution to the advancement and awareness of the value of business analysis here within the Bluegrass region. We will induct our third class of inductees for this prestigious recognition of individual effort.
