Use Case Blueprint
Realising new data sharing use cases can create new value for a wide range of organisations. After completing the exploration phase, in which the Use Case Playbook is used, the Use Case Blueprint is used in the next phase of our use case development approach: the design phase. The Use Case Blueprint aims to help you design your data sharing use case so that trust is enabled, and future scalability is considered. It helps you to make design choices on all topics relevant to your data sharing use case and creates a high-level use case design. For example, about the agreements that need to be made with regards to your business model, governance, or contracts. All these aspects play a significant role in enabling the trust needed to realise the use case and contribute towards its success. Thus, a wide variety of topics are considered and agreed upon by all involved actors.
The Use Case Blueprint provides an actionable approach, consisting of three steps, to make all necessary design choices on relevant topics:
- Scope and Ambition: define a scope and goal for your data sharing use case to create focus for the subsequent steps. Ensure all involved stakeholders understand the ambition, context and future outlook of the use case.
- Functionalities: determine the required functionalities to enable your use case and provide a foundation to make detailed decisions in the next step.
- Enablers: develop the agreements needed to enable necessary functionalities. Form requirements for actors involved in the use cases that are ready for implementation.
These three steps from the Blueprint result in a list of high-level requirements which serves as a starting point for the next phase, the implementation of the use case.
