Effective User Stories for Agile Requirements
Projects start with their requirements. How those requirements are documented or expressed has a tremendous influence on the rest of the project. User stories originated in the agile processes but are useful even if you are not planning to use an agile process.
The technique of expressing requirements as user stories is one of the most broadly applicable techniques introduced by the agile processes. However, user stories are an effective approach on all time-constrained projects. In this course, we will look at how to identify and write good user stories. We’ll see the six attributes all good stories must exhibit and present thirteen guidelines for writing better stories. We will explore how user role modeling can help when gathering a project’s initial stories.
During this hands-on course we will have the opportunity to practice identifying user roles and writing stories on a case study.
You Will Learn
