Chapter MeetingGo Back


Please join us at Farm Bureau as we partner with Dave Saboe to offer our first virtual chapter meeting! Dave will be joining us remotely from Chicago for an interactive session focused on writing high quality user stories. We are excited to pilot this new functionality as it will give us the opportunity to provide more valuable and diverse content to our membership!

Writing User Stories? You're Doing It Wrong!
User stories are a great way to capture and manage requirements. Unfortunately, many teams and organizations struggle to get the expected value out of applying user stories. Teams often ask for documentation on the details behind the user stories and some BAs resort to creating detailed requirements in addition to user stories. In this session, you'll find out how to be effective with user stories and overcome some of the challenges associated with user stories. In this interactive presentation, we'll explore tools and approaches you need to get value out of user stories.
Learning Objectives
  • * Find out how to create effective user stories and acceptance criteria
  • * Understand why you should use user stories over traditional "system shall" statements and use cases
  • * Be able to apply user stories in your organization to create a shared understanding
