After learning a lot from your customers, you now need to analyze, evaluate, and negotiate. One way to begin working with the data is to write out explicit goals from the information you've gathered. Goals can be written at high and low levels, but they need to be clear and measurable at any level. The first step is determining behavioral goals.

Once goals have been identified, they can be pulled together to create use cases; these are easy to read and understand by both customer and developer. To address security, misuse cases and abuse cases can also be defined, in written or drawn form.
