Putting User Stories into business value order is a key tenet of Agile, but that's just the first step. There's much more value to be extracted from your user stories by making them small and valuable. Not only will you create more value by splitting stories, you will also reduce their cost!
One of the hardest parts about writing small and valuable stories is overcoming problems like having stories that cross teams or architectural layers. Many organizations say “we can’t show value until the end.” Very often, the “stories” being implemented in these situations are really just tasks masquerading as user stories. This session will show you how to overcome these impediments and create stories that are small and valuable no matter what.
The key to creating small and valuable stories is story splitting. Techniques covered will include: split by "create/read/update/delete", split by acceptance test, cake slicing, split by generated list, split by keyword, split by user, follow the test scenario, and “hard coding.”
