Requirements analysts rarely use manual stencils nowadays. Technological advances mean that analysts can draw many types of diagrams. In this column, invited columnist Colin Codephirst asks whether this is progress, reflects on the advantages of old-style stencils, and muses on whether these stencils offered some advantages that have been forgotten. He outlines the requirements for a new stencil for analysts in the 21st century.
