User Stories: Across the 7 Product Dimensions

User stories are a powerful technique agile teams use to communicate requirements. Yet all too often, stories are poorly written or even incomprehensible.  Some stories are too big and travel across delivery cycles. Some are too small and don't deliver sufficient details for developers or value to customers. Others are not yet “ready” to be specified with acceptance criteria. Join Paul to learn the 7 Product Dimensions—the 7 D's—which yield “just right” stories that users and product owners can write and developers understand. You'll see how to use the 7 Dimensions: User, Interface, Action, Data, Control, Quality, and Environment as the basis for conducting “structured conversations” in which you explore options and evaluate them again value considerations so you can assemble them into cohesive user stories. Leave with a practical, collaborative framework for discovering the right—and “just right”—stories worthy of specification and delivery.
