Initiating an Agile Project For Developers
A 59 Seconds Agile Article
This article provides a discussion on ‘Initiating an Agile Project’ and looks to discuss what Agile is and the processes involved when starting an Agile project.
Initiating an Agile Project
You saw in the example at the start of presentation how streamlined the documentation process is. The personas, and the creation of Epics which are used to form user stories, are linked directly to the project vision.
This means that the entire team is aligned on the direction the product is going to take, and they won’t find it as easy to get lost in the details of a giant requirements document.
Just-in-time documentation frees the scrum team to spend their efforts on actually creating a product. Remember, use just-in-time documentation for the quickest release of value.

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.
