Panning For User Story Gold – Webinar

This webinar discuss how split up big stories to maximize business value delivery.

Putting User Stories into business value order is a key tennet of Agile, but that’s just the first step. There’s much more value to be extracted from your user stories using specific story splitting techniques combined with reducing cycle time. By splitting user stories you can separate the gold from the dirt as well as reduce the cost of implementation.
This session will cover a variety of methods for splitting user stories and reducing cycle time including the “create/read/update/delete” method, the acceptance test method, the split by value method, frequent grooming, Kanban flow, and software tool support.
