re: Enough with the User Stories already! VIEW POST


What's your point exactly? User Stories are bad? I think they're pretty good for helping business folk understand what features they'll get. They can't think abstractly, they need User Stories. Your conclusion that a User Story is not a Feature is of course correct, but I didn't personally hear anyone claiming the contrary. I've always understood them as examples of a user's interaction with the system. If you understood them as something else until recently, that's unfortunate, but it doesn't necessarily mean they're bad. Anyway, your actual arguments seem to be more about the term User Story being misleading, in which case I also disagree. I think it's a pretty good description of what they are: a user's "story" about their interaction with the system to achieve some outcome. I'm not sure how you or anyone ever reached the conclusion that they were Features.
