When it comes to user stories it is worth noting that all projects start with their requirements. How those requirements are documented or expressed has a tremendous influence on the rest of the project. A great way to build software that meets real users’ real needs and gets the project off on the right foot is to begin with user stories.
User stories are simple, clear, brief descriptions of functionality told from the perspective of a user. User stories in a Scrum or any agile development project are written to describe functionality a user or customer wants. These user stories can then become the product backlog of a Scrum or agile project.
The technique of expressing requirements as user stories is one of the most broadly applicable techniques introduced by an agile methodology; and user stories can also be an effective approach on all time-constrained projects.
This Agile User Stories course provides you with the knowledge and tools needed to identify and write effective and helpful user stories. You'll learn the six attributes all good stories must exhibit and thirteen guidelines for writing a better user story. The class explores how user role modeling can help when gathering a project's initial stories. During this hands-on course, all participants will have the opportunity to practice identifying user roles and writing stories on a case study.
PMPs: This Agile User Stories course counts for 7.5 Professional Development Units (PDUs).
