The Life of a User Story

schedule Oct 24th 10:00 AM - 10:45 AM place Ballroom A

User Stories are a fantastic way of bringing together someone who is requesting a need and someone(s) who will transform that need into a working increment. Inevitably, we encounter needs that are large in nature, too big for a sprint. What do we do about those things? What if we are working in a multi-sprint release? How do we break those large things into smaller sprint size chunks and maintain the concept of potentially shippable increments?  Let’s explore that world with a few techniques.
