A 59 Seconds Agile Article
This article provides an ‘Introduction to Agile’ and looks to discuss what Agile is. It provides a brief introduction into the history of Agile and why Agile is important.
How are user stories developed?
User stories can go through several changes throughout the project, as the Scrum team continues to inspect and adapt the product. These changes would include:
First, redefining or rewording the user story to better capture the user’s needs
Second, breaking down user stories into smaller user stories
Third, coming up with epics, which are large bodies of work that would encompass and organize smaller user stories.

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.
