Agile Requirements & User Stories

A well-formed Product Backlog is fundamental to the success of the team.

Participants are given a comprehensive overview of writing, decomposing and sizing User Stories.

This Agile training course provides in-depth exercises illustrating how to create awesome user stories, empowering the team to create a high quality product backlog.

During this course we will build a real-life product backlog that we will use to practice the techniques covered in this course.  The majority of the course will be spent “doing” rather than instructor lecture.  When you leave this course you will have a model of a fully functioning product backlog and release plan.
