Summary

In this book, you will be given proven methods to create, maintain, and manage your requirements using user stories as part of an agile scrum teamFollowing this, I give you a complete overview of epics and themes and how they can be used to capture and group complex requirements in any team or business. Along the way, I give you plenty of examples and give you best practices for working with user stories within agile scrum. You will learn:

  • What user stories are and why they are so powerful for capturing requirements in complex projects
  • How to feel confident in writing user stories for any project
  • What a Requirements Spec is and why they are less flexible than a product backlog built with Agile User Stories
  • What the Three Rs rule, Acceptance Criteria, the INVEST Principle, the Three Cs principle and Edge Cases are and how they will make you a better user story writer or agile practitioner
  • How and when to split and amalgamate stories
  • Techniques to help you to split user stories when working in the real world
  • The difference between Epics and Themes and when each is used
  • Who is responsible for writing user stories in agile and scrum

So let's get started and let me teach you how to improve product backlog management.

Good

I'm a developer and at work we're moving to agile. Whilst I know I will learn on the job this book is a great high level overview and goes into just enough detail to make it useful.

Solid Survey for Agile Practitioners and N00bs

Project Management is a serious skill that we do not master accidentally. For those of us wanting to get our minds wrapped around agile concepts, this is a great way to start! For those of us who have convinced ourselves that we know this material and are ready for the "next level" this book still has something to teach you, remind you of, provoke you towards.

Too basic and introductory for me.

I've been following scrum for several years, was looking for detailed info.

I don't have more to say, adding words to meet review minimum.
