PM Podcast – How to Write Excellent User Stories

Recently, I was able to speak at the Project Management Institute (PMI)® Global Conference 2017 in Chicago, Illinois. During the conference I participated in an interview for a PM Podcast; it was recently published.

Here is the introduction to the podcast, with a link to the podcast at the end. I hope you enjoy it!

Episode 408: How to Write Excellent User Stories

In agile, technically anyone can write user stories. Sounds easy, right?

However, many people really do not have a good understanding of how to write high-quality stories or effectively manage the product backlog. In this interview you will learn about the full life cycle of agile requirements, including how to use visual models at each step of the iterative process.

We explain the life cycle of agile requirements and how to use visual models to identify epics and user stories, and how to write testable acceptance criteria using a variety of techniques.

    Dear Betsy,
    i really enjoyed your interview. Sadly i couldn’t participate your presentation. I would love to try the BA-Process you mentioned and some of your visual models to get to write better user stories myself. Is it possible to get a look on your presentation (slides, models or anything you are willing to share?)

    Thanky you in advance
