Topic: Understanding how to make your user stories “ready” is the key for incremental delivery of your “done” product.
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 product requirements. But user stories often lead to confusion, bloated backlogs, ineffective or inconsistent planning, and erratic sprint flow. This thrashing is not how user stories are intended to work!
Join Ellen Gottesdiener in this fast-paced dive into a common-sense, tested approach to user stories. You’ll follow a story as it’s sliced across the seven product dimensions, based on value. You’ll learn how structured conversations enable 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.
