Agile Requirements with User Stories
User Stories, a key practice from Extreme Programming, provide a right-sized solution to more efficiently identify, track and implement product requirements. Learn how identify, write and decompose "good" user stories that drive agile behavior and business value.
Gartner has predicted that by 2007, most companies will adopt, in some IT projects, methodologies that are labeled “agile”. However, at least 25% of these projects will actually be following, implicitly or explicitly, “waterfall” style development.
Why? Because companies do not understand agile requirements gathering techniques. Learn how to leverage User Stories to align development to the business, drive value to the business and drive agile behaviors within the development team.
NOTE: Pete Behrens spent 7 years developing the leading requirements management solution - IBM Rational RequisitePro. Come find out why he switched.
