From Models to Stories: Building Your Agile Backlog

Business analysts, product managers, and product owners have embraced the power of visual models in software requirements projects. However, as teams transition to agile, the place for visual models is evolving. This presentation will discuss the use and timing of visual models in agile, how to use models to identify user stories and system stories for the backlog, how models can be employed when elaborating stories in the backlog,and even how to leverage models to improve business engagement in agile projects. We will show you specific examples and will practice together using a simple scenario.

Learning Objectives

  • Gaining an overview of models and how they fit in agile.
  • How to discover user stories using models such as Feature Trees and Process Flows.
  • How to use models to elaborate user stories.
