Demystifying Agile: Writing Good User Stories
When: Tuesday, March 9, 2021, 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Where: Via Zoom
Credit: 1.5 Technical PDU
Registration Fee: Complimentary
Facilitators: Leigh Ann Gunther, Director of Agile; David Betancourt, Agilist & Senior Software Architect
We asked what you wanted from Agile Programing, and we heard you!
In continuing our journey to “Demystify Agile,” join us for a session designed to explore the art of “Writing Good User Stories.” We will focus our time on the practical application of crafting User Stories. During this session, we will walk participants through receiving a requirement and breaking it down to the User Story level.
Please join PMI-DVC Director of Agile, Leigh Ann Gunther, accompanied by Agilist, Architect, and User Story writer extraordinaire David Betancourt, as we explore how Requirements transform into user stories with tangible value and deliverables. What makes a good User Story? How do we know?
- Learn how to take a Requirement from the end-user or consumer and transform it into User Stories. We will share examples and field questions from members.
- Learn how to INVEST in user story writing. The INVEST model assesses the value of a user story. User Stories should be Independent, Negotiable, Valuable, Estimate-able, Sized Appropriately, and Testable. We will discuss how this model contributes to building user stories from Requirements.
- Learn how to create Acceptance Criteria and not solutions. Iterative refinement and demos to the end-user or consumer lead us to the solutions.
7:00 pm – 8:30 pm Speaker presentation and Q&A
