Big thanks to @BeccaR for helping us navigate the art and science of user stories today! I have attached the meeting materials here and the video will posted once it is available. My favorite part was reviewing some real-life user stories and seeing how they could be improved.
End users (ideally) write user stories with guidance from the Anaplan project team
Good user stories are specific enough to estimate LOE, but do NOT include Anaplan-specific design components
User stories (and backlog) should be evergreen throughout project and after go- live.
Revisit all user stories periodically, add detail to existing, create net new, split user stories into multiple, etc.
Anaplan Way (or selected PM tool) should be a one stop shop
Minimize extra documentation to record user story detail
Exception – Artifacts specifically mentioned in the user story
Set up expectations with functional team/SMEs that their time commitmentcontinues throughout build & test
Drop any questions you have for us in the chat below!
Really enjoyed this watchback. Will be sharing with the team (and also some non-Anaplan developers as it all holds true!) Lots of insight and items that I knew but had been filtered to the back of the memory.
