Great User stories enable teams to provide solutions that are right for customers and business stakeholders. Focusing on end users helps us to create outcomes that users need and want. We'll teach you how to get started with great user stories and how to estimate your work to give your stakeholders visibility of expected delivery.
During this one-day activity-based training course participants will get hands on experience of writing user stories, estimating, splitting stories and how to prioritise.
Many teams already work with user stories but don't have the techniques and learning to truly engage with them. Attending this course will give participants the tools to understand and work with user stories in a more meaningful way. Your organisation will benefit from right sized solutions that deliver against business goals and customer needs.
