User Stories for Agile Requirements Workshop

About

This is a one-day workshop that helps your team become proficient in using user stories for capturing requirements and gaining a deep understanding of specifications. During the workshop, participants learn how to translate product roadmaps into small increments of functionality that are truly “done”. This ensures great flexibility in development and enables iterations of one week or even less.

The content is oriented to practice. Most of the day participants are doing hands-on exercises with the received tools, with the benefit of starting to use these right away in their day to day work.

Who should attend

The workshop is aimed at Product Owners, Scrum Masters and all other members of agile teams struggling, from developers to testers, to bring their user stories down to a level where they could be implemented in a few days.

More senior managers can also gain a better understanding of how the product portfolio and company vision can be described in full detail with the help of user stories.
