You will learn the necessary theory and then try to write your own User Stories. In addition, we will try to break down too large User Stories into smaller ones.

This course is widely used in agile teams. It is suitable for scrum masters, product owners and agile team members. You will learn how to write requirements for agile development teams and what mistakes are made. You will then write a User Story and together we will go over the requirements feedback. After a few examples, you’ll be able to write down requirements as well as give feedback to others.

Size of user stories

Scrum development teams usually plan a few small user stories in a sprint. That’s why in the training you will also learn how to tell if your requirement is too big. You’ll also learn how to break down requests into smaller ones using splitting patterns.

Preparing for the course

Bring your own assignment that you want to try preparing requirements on. By working on an assignment that is realistic and in the context of your business, the course will be of great value to you. The course instructor has experience not only as a Scrum Master, but also as an IT and business analyst and has run a number of workshops on preparing User Stories.
