Your User Stories Are Too Big with Chris Sims
Show Notes

Product owners often struggle to translate their big ideas into small user stories that the team can deliver in a sprint. When a user story is too big, it is harder to understand, estimate, and implement successfully. Some teams break the ‘business story’ into ‘technical stories’ but this doesn’t solve the problem because most or all of the technical stories need to be completed before there is anything meaningful for the stakeholders. This session will teach you 4 simple, yet powerful techniques to break big stories into smaller stories that are meaningful to stakeholders and deliver business value.
