The session from Agile On The Beach Conference 2017 sees David Evans from Neuri Consulting discuss how to tell better user stories.
User Stories are one of those things that are enormously useful when described well, and painful when done badly. Dan’s experience of working with a large number of teams has exposed him to far more bad stories than good ones. In this presentation Dan provides several ideas to help you improve the way you express stories. He explores the problems arising from slavish and unimaginative adherence to the common “As a…, I Want…, So that…” template and examines the deeper structure and elements of stories and how they evolve as ideas. He also provides invaluable tips for using alternative styles of expressing these elements.
