Two of the most applied practices have been essentialized – Scrum and Use-Cases.
Essentialization is describing a practice using Essence. Using this approach Scrum, which probably is the most popular agile practice today, was essentialized by Jeff Sutherland, one of the two creators of Scrum. Jeff blogged about it here: https://www.scruminc.com/better-scrum-through-essence/#comment-31323
The new generation of Use-Case, called Use-Case 2.0, is also essentialized. Read about it here https://pages.services/ss.ivarjacobson.com/use-case-2/
Use-Case 2.0 is ideal to work with Agile frameworks like Scrum, Scrum at Scale, Disciplined Agile and SAFe®. A use-case is sliced in value-adding slices suitable as elements in the backlog, easy to prioritise thanks to that use cases are easy to prioritise. As an additional benefit you will see the big picture of all your stories/slices. You can learn more about Use-Case 2.0 here (https://bit.ly/21f7QEn) in a paper published in CACM and ACM Queue “Use-Case 2.0: The Hub of Software Development”.
