About the course

User stories help to define the functions a business system must provide and facilitate defining requirements on an Agile project. How do you know what your end user wants or needs? How can you define these needs in terms that are easy to understand and build to? You will learn the techniques for developing a user story via story cards, personas, and role cards through hands-on exercises and applications. You will practice other Agile approaches, such as release planning and backlog grooming, which ensures that the work being done is the work that is needed.
