April 02 Meeting: Agile Coach DAMON POOLE on: PANNING FOR USER-STORY GOLD

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 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 including the split by “create/read/update/delete” method, the split by acceptance test method, and the split by value method. These techniques can produce even more value when combined with frequent grooming and Kanban flow which will also be covered.
