Course Overview

User stories are so-called because of how we use them, not how we write them. They should be telling a story of what a user needs.

Don't think of user stories as a fancy Agile way of writing requirements, instead, they are a different way of working. Which should encourage collaborative, emergent thinking and communication through conversation within a team.

In this one-day workshop, you will explore the most popular techniques when writing, gathering & splitting user stories, along with how to use personas to ensure customer-centric thinking and hone your skills to support your team to perform tasks effectively.
