re: Enough with the User Stories already! VIEW POST


Nothing in Agile requires a User Story. They get used because they are supposed to be simple and easy to understand. The largest problem with them I think is people overthink things with them. Then they create specific ways they must be done. Then they become so concerned about the rules and the proper way to make one

It needs to be simple, it needs to be understood by the team. Those are the only rules that matter.

It doesn't need to explain everything about the application and how you are getting to where you are going, you don't need user stories for all the little details. If the "As a ..., I want...., Because..." format doesn't work well - don't do it that way.

"We need a secure way to create our user accounts to protect customer data."
