What is a User Story?
A user story is an agile software development/ project management tool that provides teams with simple, natural language explanations of one or more features of the project that’s written from the perspective of the end-user.
The user story doesn’t go into detail but only mentions how certain types of work will bring value to the end-user. The end-user, in this case, could be an external component or an internal customer/colleague within the organization.
They also form the building block of agile frameworks like epics and other initiatives.
They ensure that the teams work towards the goals of the organization, with the help of epics and initiatives.
The requirements to make a user story a reality are added later, after discussions with the team.
They are recorded on post-it notes, index cards, or project management software.
