The Perfect User Story - A Sketch WorkshopJason Tice
schedule 2 years agoSold Out!
Join us to review and create a new “picture” that depicts the fundamental elements of the perfect user story. Using a series of small group discussions and collaborative activities, participants will review user story writing essentials including: story hierarchy; the 3-C’s of user stories; canonical story form; proper language to use within user stories; splitting stories using a thin vertical slice; capturing metrics for complexity and business value; and adding acceptance criteria to user stories. During the workshop, participants will be challenged to sketch the outcome of their group collaboration to create their own visual depiction of the perfect user story that they will be able to take with them after the workshop to help them recall what they learn. Workshop participants will leave having reviewed the essential elements to write effective user stories for agile software development, while also experiencing the power of sketch and visual thinking as tools that can enable improved communication and understanding of complex information. All will be engaged and have a bit of fun creating their own unique sketch of the perfect user story while also admiring the visual creations of fellow workshop participants.
