WHAT IS A USER STORY?

A USER STORY IS THE CORE OF AGILE SOFTWARE PHILOSOPHY.

IT'S A USER CENTERED WAY OF WRITING A FEATURE OR PART OF
A FEATURE THAT SERVES THE BEGINNING INTENTIONS AND

APPROACH TO BUILDING A SPECIFIC PIECE OF SOFTWARE

 

 

 

WHO WRITES THE STORY?

MOST OF THE TIME THIS IS THE
TASK OF THE PRODUCT MANAGER.

DESIGNERS WILL GIVE PM'S

VALIDATED DESIGNS AND THE

PM WILL BREAK DOWN THE
DESIGN AND WRITE STORIES
FOR ENGINEERS TO REVIEW.

DESIGNERS WILL INCLUDE THE

SPECIFIC DESIGN TO THE STORY.

AT PIVOTAL, WE TEND TO PAIR

WITH PM'S ON STORIES.
