Agile Stroy-Writing Workshop

1 Day

Lay a solid foundation of well-written User Stories for your agile projects!

The Agile software development methods are designed to make software development quicker, more responsive to the customer's needs, and resilient in the face of change. They are based on the unique philosophy that success in software projects is not dependent upon fully documented requirements and rigorous change control. They present a new way to think about software projects that results in projects that look quite different from traditional projects.

User Stories as placeholders for project requirements form the foundation of Agile Projects. With a sound foundation, an Agile project is much more likely to successfully meet the expectations of their customer while addressing the inevitable changes.

This course will help you to maximize the benefits you get from Agile projects by writing effective User Stories.

During this course, you will:

  • Understand how User Stories enable the philosophies and principles upon which the Agile Methods are founded
  • Learn the basics of User Story-writing
  • Distinguish between good and bad stories
  • Learn to identify as many User Stories as possible
