Scrum User Stories and Tasks
A 59 Seconds Agile Article
This article provides an ‘Introduction to the Agile User Stories and Tasks’ and looks to discuss what a user story is and what and Agile Task is.
Scrum User Stories and Epics
Now your team is set up to develop user stories. By breaking down epics into each of their individual aspects, your team gets a complete look at what the customer will be using each feature for. They can use this information to determine how to develop each feature to provide the most value. This work would fit best into the experience of the product owner, but the whole team can help write user stories.
However, the product owner is the person who verifies that the user story meets the acceptance criteria for that feature.
Your team’s next step is to estimate the complexity of the user stories. These estimates will help your team figure out how many, and which user stories, they are able to complete during the upcoming sprint. This is aided by the calculation of your team’s velocity, or the average of the number of story points completed in the previous sprints. These points are a representation of the complexity of the user stories.
Keeping track of the total points your team was able to complete in one sprint, will help determine many user stories to accept in future sprints.

User Stories Applied
A 59 Seconds Agile Book Review
User Stories Applied by Mike Cohn is one of our favourite books on Agile User Stories. The book starts with an overview into user stories, and details what a user story is and the different aspects of them. He then discusses how to go about writing a user story, and provides details of the INVEST criteria that can be used to determine if the story is meeting all of its objectives. Next Mike gives an in depth discussion of who user stories are written for and where to begin when gathering the details for them. The book then discusses acceptance testing user stories, including how to go about specifying these criteria and the responsibilities of the development team and customers during this process.
