Getting User Stories Right by Thomas Immich

Getting User Stories Right by Thomas Immich

How to bridge the gap between what users need and products serve by Thomas Immich, co-founder and director of Centigrade.

User stories are well-accepted organizational units among agile software engineers. However, most user stories are nothing more than disguised tasks or feature requests. This may suit the purpose of breaking down complexity or tracking progress « in some kind of way », however, it painfully misses the user story’s actual roots: keeping user needs in mind before, during and after implementation.

The talk will explain why user stories should not be written solely by Product Owners or engineers and outline how UX designers and UX researchers can initiate more sustainable user stories that make it into the sprint even when being initiated very early in the process.

Thomas will present the « user booklet method » as an agile organizational model to collect work results and artifacts in a vertical rather than horizontal manner. He will show the benefits of the method by demonstrating an inspiring sample case by using a novel user requirements tool called « LeanScope Educational ».

Participants will learn a lot about user requirements engineering and user needs analysis to take away a multitude of insights on how to effectively combine UX with agile.
