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.
