Slicing User Stories

1,587 views

Published on

Many teams struggle with getting user stories small enough and sufficiently understood for planning and delivery. Slicing user stories so they are valuable and actionable is collaborative work - involving the Product Owner, Scrum Master and the team. See how slicing user stories accelerates ongoing backlog refinement, helps sprint and release planning, and increases delivered value.

These are slides from the webinar presented by the co-creator of Scrum, Jeff Sutherland, and the industry's leading expert on story-slicing, Ellen Gottesdiener, on February 24th 2016.

Contact ellen@ebgconsulting.com if you are interested listening to the recording.
