Writing user stories is harder than you think. Trying to capture the functionality the user wants is not always that simple. User stories are one of the most applicable techniques introduced by Agile and many organizations have been using them in place of their stakeholder requirements in Waterfall environments because of their ease of use and relatability to their users. Getting them right takes practice. Many user stories are too big and cannot be worked on. Some are too small adding no real value. This course helps you write effective user stories by identifying the attributes and guidelines for writing better user stories.

There are many approaches to Agile but very few address how the Business Analyst fits into the approach or how business analysis is done. It seems to magically happen by everyone on the team and unfortunately, many teams are struggling and wondering why they don’t have a business analyst. There is more to it than a user story right?
