The technique of expressing requirements as user stories is one of the most broadly applicable techniques introduced by the agile processes. User stories are an effective approach on all time constrained projects and are a great way to begin introducing agility to your projects.

In this talk, we will look at
  • Identifying and writing good user stories
  • Guidelines for writing better stories
  • How user role modelling can help when gathering a project’s initial stories
  • Determining how much work to do up-front and how much to do just-in-time
