II         What is a User Story?

a.       Describes the functionality or feature a product will deliver to a user

b.      Helps to create a simplified description of a requirement

c.       States the requirements from the viewpoints of different stakeholders

d.      More ‘Human’ than standard functional requirements

i.      Should require the team to have a conversation

ii.      Stories should evolve with scrum team discussion and technical feedback

e.       A common template used for user stories is:

i.      “As a < role >, I want to < do what > so I can < benefit how > .”

f.       How does someone gather the requirements for a User Story?

i.      Understanding the needs of the Customer / Client

1.      Jobs to be Done

2.      Features or Functionality that clients are looking for

3.      Feedback from the clients/users

4.      Usage Analytics

g.      New Research available

h.      Hypothesis that the team would like to prove

III      Different people could be providing information in different formats. What becomes critical is the ability to synthesize them and present them in a way of what is the problem that the user/customer is facing.
