User Story Definition

  • Simple description of a feature
  • From the perspective of the user typically
  • If a user story covers a lot of detail it is called an epic
  • You can add detail to user stories by breaking into smaller stories or adding conditions

User Stories in Practice

  • Anyone can write user stories
  • Product owners manage them
  • Stories are written throughout the project with a bulk being made at the start
  • The stories need to be further defined / discussed to replace a requirements doc
