In order to deliver business value as early as possible

As an overwhelmed cross-functional team member

I need 6589 disembodied user stories sitting in a backlog in Jira

Like I need a hole in the head.

Are user stories actually helpful?

Or are they doing us harm?

Have we wandered away from their intended use?

User stories are dangerous

In this talk you'll explore the different ways that user stories can kill your project and how to stay on the safe path to value using the OOPSI model. OOPSI is an outside-in process. You start with the outcomes (the value), and expertly navigate the quickest path to achieving those outcomes. You might even be able to do this without writing a single user story. (But shhhhhhhhh! don't tell anyone I said that!)

The Call for Papers is now open for Agile Testing & BDD 2017! Submit your talk for the chance to join a stellar line-up of experts on stage. Find out more.
