Description

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 investments!

Whether you are a product owner, scrum master, business analyst, team member, business stakeholder or simply someone who wants the answer to the question “what is a user story”, this is the place to start. If you are preparing to become an agile product owner or agile business analyst then this class is for you.

In this class you will learn:

  • Concise overview of Agile User Stories – Including How to write a user story description, acceptance criteria to capture the detail, the purpose of epics and themes in dealing with large or vague requirements and how to split stories along with the reasons why user stories are favoured over traditional methods of capturing requirements. This includes lectures on the principles that underpin user stories, such as the INVEST principle and the Three C’s formula.
  • The facts based on real industry experience and agile expertise – The correct terminology and use of User stories is essential to mastering it. My experience in industry and extensive research into the topic has been used to give you a solid grounding in the most concise way possible.
  • Agile Product Owners / Agile Business Analyst preparation – I tell you the exact theory and give you templates to prepare you for writing user stories in the real work, business or workplace without having to do a face to face course saving you hundreds if not thousands of dollars.

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.

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.

FAQs

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At reed.co.uk courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on reed.co.uk, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as ABC Awards and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
