What is a User Story?

A User Story is the description of a product feature or requirement from a user’s perspective. Based on my experience, it is the simplest way to capture requirements which focus on adding value and help businesses to deliver early return on investment!

The course is video based with no supporting document necessary. I go through key gotchas from the scrum guide.  If you have 3by5 index cards, this is a bonus but you can get started without this.

How is the course structured?

Each section features an overview of a particular aspect of User Stories such as Principles, How to write a user story description, how to write acceptance criteria, or epics. Examples are included throughout the course. All is based on Agile theory and real world experience so you know that you are learning the facts.

Inspired by God, the Bible, Mike Cohn.

  1. User Stories For Agile Scrum: Product Owner And Business Analysis

    5

    Excellent Course

  2. Fast, effcient, or effective tool

    4

    This course was relatable, fast, very efficient and to the point. It had valid points which makes it an effective tool in my opinion. It’s only downfall that I can see is that it moves slowly, so performance needs improving and the speaker voice changing from a man with a very, very southern drawl of an accent, to a man with a very, very not southern accent (British I believe). Definitely threw a wrench in things because it took me a minute to figure out that it just was how the course was set up. Other than that piece, it was pretty amazing. It took me less than 3 hours (work mandated ones are longer) and I got the same information. So, great job! Thanks!
