User Story Essentials Workshop

Requirements are the building block for projects. And the way those requirements are captured and documented can determine whether a project is delivered on time or within budget. A popular Agile technique, user stories are a concise description of features or functionality that deliver value to customers.

Written from an end users perspective, user stories are an effective approach for capturing and prioritising requirements on time and budget constrained projects – regardless of whether those projects are Agile or not. Created throughout a project’s life-cycle, user stories are also a great way of managing changing requirements.

During this interactive training, you will gain hands on experience writing user stories for a simulation project. Using real-life examples, case studies and practical exercises, this course will give you tools and techniques for capturing and documenting user stories on any project; regardless of size, complexity and whether those projects are Agile or not.
