Introduction to User Stories and Agile Requirements

Course Code



2 Days

One of the following courses is required:
  • Agile Team Training Camp (AG10)
  • Agile Scrum Master (AG35)
  • Agile Product Owner (AG36) 
  • Agile Essentials (AG11)

The shift to Agile approaches has affected how we define, discuss, and document requirements. In adopting an Agile approach, we look to travel light, embrace change, and value interactions over prescriptive processes. This course provides opportunities for participants to put principles and techniques into practice by creating a Product Vision; employing the User Stories to identify, describe, and discuss requirements and Acceptance Criteria; prioritize Stories and size them appropriately, while avoiding common pitfalls.

This course is designed for Product Owners, Business Analysts, Development Team Members, or anyone responsible for requirements in Agile efforts. It is also appropriate for Scrum Masters and Agile coaches who are responsible for coaching the Team.

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
  • Explain how requirements fit into the Agile approach
  • Define User Stories
  • Identify the Product Vision, value, and key stakeholders
  • Capture stakeholder and project requirements with User Stories
  • Prioritize User Stories
  • Build and use Story Maps and Product Backlogs
  • Identify and validate Acceptance Criteria for User Stories
  • Slice User Stories
  • Identify common User Story pitfalls and address how to avoid them
  • Explain how User Stories enhance Agile and integrate with Scrum
