To provide a deep and practical curriculum around good practice for the creation of, and management of, Agile user stories
With individuals from business and IT teams working remotely, it’s more important than ever to facilitate clear, constructive conversations that underpin seamless software delivery.
When use cases or epics are deconstructed into well-crafted user stories, it boosts the organisation’s ability to streamline and accelerate software delivery. So, user stories are intrinsic to one of the critical success factors of the digital economy: rapid, incremental software improvements that continually enhance the user experience.
It sounds straightforward. But it’s easy to lose sight of the need for simplicity. When this happens, user stories can quickly become an ineffective administrative burden.
This programme will take participants through a pragmatic and thorough training programme focused on user stories. We will assume no prior knowledge and aim to leave participants with not only a deep understanding of the why, what, and how of user stories but additionally with the ability to coach the rest of the organisation through the same journey.
