Split Stories Using SPIDR

As part of the full Better User Stories course, we created a poster to help people remember each of the 5 SPIDR approaches, and I’d like to offer it to you and your team as a free download. Please also feel free to share the link with any colleagues you think might find it useful.

Just to recap, SPIDR stands for:

Spike - A research activity can give you the knowledge you need to split a complex story.

Paths - If a user can do something in multiple ways, that’s a great area for splitting.

Interfaces - Splitting your story by browser, or hardware, or deliver a complex interface in iterations.

Data - You may be able to deliver value in an iteration by focusing on one type of data.

Rules - Relaxing support for the rules in an iteration can make large stories smaller.
