Gaining a Shared Understanding to Write Effective User Stories

Webinar | Seminar


The user story format is simple. However to write effective user stories takes skill and an understanding as to how they can be used to add real value.

“Who should write user stories?”
“How can I write better user stories?”
“When should we write user stories?”

All questions frequently asked. All questions entirely missing the point.

Just as the *holding* is the most important part of the rental car reservation, the *shared understanding* is the most important part of the user story.
