This paper challenges established wisdom with respect to use cases. Use cases are classically elaborated by directly identifying objects, methods and data. The research reported in this paper indicates that there are other better constructs for modeling use cases, at least initially, and that objects are not a particularly good medium for discussing requirements with users. This paper rehearses the arguments leading up to these conclusions and identifies some implications of these conclusions.
