Making Your User Stories “Ready” to Get to “Done”

One of the most challenging and trouble-prone aspects of agile product development is discovering the right product requirements to deliver at the right time, for the right customer. Many teams rely on user stories to discover and define agile requirements. But in reality user stories often lead to a confusing array of struggles and puzzles, such as bloated backlogs, ineffective or inconsistent planning, and erratic Sprint flow. This thrashing is not how user stories are intended to work!

Join Mary Gorman in this fast-paced introduction of a common sense, tested approach to user stories. With a laser-like focus on delivering value, you follow a story as it’s sliced across the 7 Product Dimensions. You learn how the Structured Conversation framework enables you to quickly explore, evaluate, and confirm stories. See how making your user stories “ready” is the key for incremental delivery of your “Done” product.   

Learning outcomes:

  • Practical ways to mitigate user story struggles
  • The four functional and three nonfunctional dimensions of every user story
  • The holistic approach to stories that smooths the way for successful iterative and incremental product delivery
