User stories and their big brothers, epics, are a great way to manage requirements for a software system. They act as stakes in the ground to keep track of what the system needs to do, the type of user most interested in each feature, and the reason it provides value to them.
As projects reach a significant size, many stories become too large for a team to finish within a single sprint, and must be split into smaller stories that can be completed within a sprint. Many Scrum teams struggle with this process, not knowing how to properly split epics and large stories in an effective manner to keep each split story shippable.
Software development expert Diana Getman will step you through proven techniques to split epics and user stories, making them smaller and more manageable, while sticking with the Scrum rule that each user story must deliver value.
During this session you’ll learn:
