User Story Workshop  

Hi

Does anyone have any good tips for facilitating an interactive user story workshop with the business users?

My goal is to take the process gaps I have identified between a new platform and the existing business and create high level features that can be used to T-Shirt size in order to support ongoing investment.

These features will be broken down into user stories when appropriate, so, at this stage, it's quite high level i.e. Epics.

Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks

Re: User Story Workshop  

HI

The starting point as you rightly have it is the Epic. What I would normally do is generate the user stories off the Epics (within your delivery team first).

For your workshop day, have on the walls in columns; Epics, User Stories, Issues / Risks, Others User Needs (which are yet to be captured).

During the workshop, explain to your audience how you came about the decomposed user stories from the original Epics.

Walk them through the user stories on the wall one after the other then allow for 20 to 30 mins for your audience to write on post it notes any comments they may have; Regarding the listed user stories, issues / risk they identified based on user stories on the wall or additional user needs that comes to mind at that point.

After the workshop spend some time with your delivery team at collating the information you have captured.

Hope this helps.

Kind regards

Jay

My current, favourite question for Executives and Architects is “How do you see Architecture operating in an Agile environment.” This question usually elicits a wry smile and a response along the lines of “I will need to get back to you on that!” Many people are wondering how Architecture will fair in the world of Agile.

The age of cloud computing is now so firmly established that research firm Gartner predicted by 2020, a corporate "no-cloud" policy will be as rare as a "no-internet" policy is today. In the same press release, Gartner went on to predict that spending on compute power sold by cloud providers will exceed that of compute power sold and deployed into ...
