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
What the user would want to do with the product can then be broken down into user stories. Each user story describes one specific task that can be accomplished with the product.
The user stories should all be able to be traced back to the epic they’re a part of, and then back to the vision board that your team originally created. This helps ensure that the right product is being developed for the customer.
The epics, user stories, and personas are all used to help prioritize the product backlog. The product owner is in charge of placing the most important features of the product at the top of the product backlog, so that the team is creating the most vital pieces first and releasing the highest value from the start.
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.
