Betsy Stockdale and Cornelius Fichtner

In agile, technically anyone can write user stories. Sounds easy, right?

However, many people really do not have a good understanding of how to write high-quality stories or effectively manage the product backlog. In this interview you will learn about the full life cycle of agile requirements, including how to use visual models at each step of the iterative process.

This interview with Betsy Stockdale (LinkedIn Profile) was recorded at the inspiring Project Management Institute (PMI)® Global Conference 2017 in Chicago, Illinois.

We explain the life cycle of agile requirements and how to use visual models to identify epics and user stories, and how to write testable acceptance criteria using a variety of techniques. Those currently working on their PMI-ACP training will find this interview valuable for their general understanding of Agile approaches.

Thank you Cornelius and Betsy for a step by step elaboration of developing user stories and acceptance criteria from requirements.

Another great podcast. The trick is not only writing good user stories, but the ability to reduce/split them as needed.

Like Sante, I like to break down the user stories to one-day pieces of work.

Thanks for sharing the process to create a quality user stories!!
