Using Personas for creating User Stories
Personas provide Agile teams a tool for discovering and defining User
Stories. In this session we’ll
conduct and exercise to refine some personas and derive User Stories
from them. The goal is to help
provide attendees a better understanding of what personas are and how
they might be useful in their day to day work.
This will be a joint Agile KC and IIBA meeting.
In the past these events have been well attended so make sure you
register if you’re planning on attending.
As anyone that has worked with User Stories can tell you, writing and
refining good User Stories is a skill that is developed over time.
Each project is unique and each team has different nuances that
make them dynamic. Complicating
things even more is often the need to leverage a proxy for the voice of
the business or customer. One
way of helping the team in these situations is the user of Persona’s.
Join Martin Olson of Silicon Prairie Solutions on July 17 and we’ll
discuss what a persona is, what makes a good persona and how teams can
use them to define valuable features.
