7 Tips for Writing User Stories

  1. Pick a format and stick to it. I prefer "As a <role> I want to <goal> so that <benefit>."
  2. Be sure to include acceptance tests with the story.
  3. Keep technology terms / phrases out; a story should define user interaction absent of technology.
  4. Have your customers write the stories; stories must be understandable to the customer.
  5. Don't be afraid to split large stories.
  6. Make sure each story provides something of value to the customer.
  7. Stories should be independent of each other.
