Presentation Abstract

The key to User Stories is making sure your related practices are just enough, just in time. We'll discuss the different levels of the User Story life cycle, as well as the entrance and exit criteria for each level. More importantly, we'll discuss which levels are totally optional(many of them are) and which are absolutely vital to maximizing User Story value. We'll also follow an example story through the entire life cycle as it progresses from the request level to an epic, to themes, and finally to the legacy lifecycle level.
