What You Will Learn In This LIVE Virtual Workshop:
It's important to learn how different User Story Writing and progressive elaboration of requirements is from traditional Requirements Gathering. If you're still gathering all the Requirements, and then just pass them on to a team to deliver, you're not taking advantage of all the benefits that agile has to offer.

Learn the basics of writing stories in place of “requirements” and understand the little known secret for writing shorter stories that deliver more value. We’ll cover best practices for breaking up large projects into smaller pieces and you’ll leave capable of writing stories from the user’s perspective. This interactive 2-day workshop will cover the basics of Personas, User Story Maps, and writing User Stories. You will get plenty of practice through interactive exercises to land the learning and be able to write User Stories for your next project. At the end of the course, you will be able to...
