Writing the Right User Stories Right
Presented by: Robin Goldsmith
User stories are so simple and straightforward. What could possibly go wrong? In fact, user stories’ very simplicity can create all sorts of complexities that trip up project teams, often without anyone realizing what actually is happening or why. Typical Agile training seems to focus on mechanics of managing user stories in backlogs more than on correctly defining the user stories content. In this interactive session, participants practice applying key concepts and techniques that dramatically enhance their ability to correctly identify and document user story content.
- Recognize hidden complexity traps in user stories’ seeming simplicity
- Distinguish what’s that provide real value from product feature hows
- Practice writing user stories that in fact focus on delivering real value
