Advanced User Stories

For most Agile teams, User Stories are probably the best and most widely used technique to capture user requirements and product functionalities. User Stories are simple in concept, but many Agile teams would find some challenges in writing good user stories. Some of these common challenges are (but not limited to) writing stories with the right level of detail, slicing user stories, writing stories for complex and legacy products or technical frameworks/components.

In this workshop, attendees will learn by practice how to write great user stories, and how to create, partition, prioritize and groom their backlogs. Attendees (in teams) will get the opportunity to fully practice both core and advanced techniques for writing user stories and creating backlogs in a full-day case study where each team will start from scratch by creating a vision for their product before creating its backlog of features.

In addition, attendees will also learn by practice different techniques and games which can be used for gathering and prioritizing requirements from different stakeholders
