Developing User Stories - Beyond the Basics
As a user
I want to demonstrate the uselessness of poorly authored user stories
So that the audience can judge for themselves that a statement such as this is of little value
User stories when developed and utilised correctly are the most powerful agile technique to capture product functionality, though writing user stories may seem easy, writing good stories is hard. Furthermore most of us get fixated and seldom go beyond the basics, and end up with visibly complete but useless user stories!
Components of a User Story evolve/grow both vertically (spawn more Epics) and horizontally (become more involved) – their state of completion changes during the product and sprint backlog’s lifecycle. In the deck below I explore individual components that make up a ‘complete’ and ‘ready for dev’ user story, it is based on personal successes and failures and is by its agile nature an incomplete deck! it will evolve and as it does I’ll keep you folks updated.
