Why do so many of us struggle to write good news?
I often see people struggling with the issue of smoking and laughing. “Is it too big”, “Where should I share it?”, “Can this be included in the story as part of the same trip” are the questions I face every day. And naturally it does. Most of us come from things that worked in another direction. Then there was no need to think seriously about the importance of priorities, because we would probably see these changes take place in two years. If this is not the case, we would like to make a change.
Use training wheels first
Fortunately in Agile methods we consider the value that the subject we are considering will receive from the client. If we have enough opportunities then we have a customer in the community to clear this important question for us. But many do not have the high features and need some wheels to get used to how to write good user articles.
Save the essentials for health stories
When I teach new people to Agile about what they write when writing user stories, I am satisfied that they are comfortable with INVEST’s approach to writing good stories. Let’s get into the definitions.
I – Independent: We should switch quickly without causing recurring problems. Articles need to be unlimited in order for them to be prioritized.
N – Fixed: Issues are negotiation reminders and should not be construed as a signing agreement. The real result of a user experience is to capture the conversations that took place during the run-off between the client (or vendor), the developer and the tester at least. Always remember that the goal is to meet the needs of the customer and not to create any issue for the use of the letter. If you like the past go back to the beach.
V – Important: Each issue should provide value to the client or internal process as non-essential. If it does not add value it should not be done. Weather.
E – Important: Issue should be large enough to prepare. If that is not possible then either the greatest or most unknown will exist. Destroy them too much and write down other ideas if you can’t figure out all the other nonsense.
S – Small: The story should be as small as possible but still provide value. Having the same type of functionality through the system enhances our prediction and minimizes variability. Do something simple and quit. Avoid all gold purity.
T – Testing: If we can’t test a story then we should reconsider if it’s a case of using it at all. Otherwise how can it happen if we do not measure it against the methods we have agreed upon? The aforementioned acceptance criteria confirm that the user’s case is feasible and strengthens the agreement around the matter in the first instance.
Put all that into practice
Evidence is in the pudding. At your next meeting for smokers / smackers, try to write down the stories of users with INVEST in mind. When in doubt, ask “how can I know for sure”.
