Abstract/Description

These aren’t the same old concepts repackaged. Understanding and communicating requirements in an Agile environment is a very different way of thinking and working.

In this talk, Jeff will explain where the idea of the agile story came from, and how best to write and use them. You’ll learn how stories help you manage the flow of discussion and work from big ideas all the way through to delivery. You’ll learn how to break big ideas down into organized backlogs using story mapping. You’ll learn how stories fit into a discovery process that you’ll use to better understand the challenges of your customers and users, imagine solutions, and continuously learn if you’re building things they truly value.
