Impact of the conceptual model's representation format on identifying and understanding user stories

Marina Trkman, Jan Mendling, Peter Trkman, Marjan Krisper
2019 Information and Software Technology  
We conducted an experiment to compare the effectiveness of the two business process formats: textual use cases and visual BPMN models.  ...  However, these two types of business process models might not be equally effective for elicitation tasks due to their formats. Objective.  ...  Business process models are conceptual models that are often used to improve the understanding of a business domain and, consequently, the context of requirements in general [9] [10] [11] .  ...
