User Story Nuts and Bolts

According to the PMI’s Agile Practice Guide, a user story is “a description of deliverable value for a specific user. It is a promise for a conversation to clarify details.” User Stories prompt the conversation between the business representative (also known as the Product Owner) and the agile team. As the starting point for that conversation, the user story must be “ready” for that conversation. This course explores how to construct a quality user story, along with its acceptance criteria, so the conversation starts off on the right foot.
