What is a User Story?

A User Story is the description of a product feature or requirement from from a user’s perspective. Based on my experience, it is the simplest way to capture requirements which focus on adding value and help businesses to deliver early return on investment!

In this course you will learn:

  • Concise overview of Agile User Stories - Including How to write a user story description, acceptance criteria to capture the detail, the purpose of epics and themes in dealing with large or vague requirements and how to split stories along with the reasons why user stories are favoured over traditional methods of capturing requirements. This includes lectures on the principles that underpin user stories, such as the INVEST principle and the Three Cs formula.
  • The facts based on real industry experience and agile expertise - The correct terminology and use of User stories is essential to mastering it. My experience in industry and extensive research into the topic has been used to give you a solid grounding in the most concise way possible.
  • Agile Product Owners / Agile Business Analyst preparation - I tell you the exact theory and give you templates to prepare you for writing user stories in the real workd, business or work place without having to do a face to face course saving you hundreds if not thousands of dollars.

The course is video based with no supporting document necessary. I go through key gotchas from the scrum guide. If you have 3by5 index cards, this is a bonus but you can get started without this.
