Engaging and Entertaining Workshop

Our user story workshop is perfect for anyone who will be involved in gathering requirements and writing user stories. This workshop is a fun and interactive way to help you and your team learn the definition of a user story, how to gather user-centric requirements, and how to effectively document them through hands-on exercises. We cover real-world examples from you and other attendees organizations, so you walk away with confidence in making, and working with user stories.

Training for Your Team

We offer private classes for organizations who have one or more teams that will attend training. Private classes can be held at your location and allow us to cater to the needs of your organization.

Training for You

Public classes are a great fit if you or a few of your colleagues are looking
to attend training. We regularly teach public Scrum Master classes virtually online and in Chicago, New York City, Seattle, and Los Angeles.


User stories are a people-first approach to informally documenting the product needs of a user. They are written from the perspective of the end-user to communicate the problem and the value derived from a solution. The idea is to start with the end in mind and work forward toward the how. In general, user stories are a way to help ensure the developers understand the user's needs and can develop solutions that meet those needs.

Good user stories provide the space for innovation and an additional layer of transparency that facilitates empiricism in Scrum.


Well-structured user stories:

  • Reduce misinterpretations
  • Decrease misunderstandings and false starts
  • Create a clearer picture of the problem, and any constraints, fostering innovation and creativity
  • Enable successful product development, planning, and faster delivery of working product

You’ll leave knowing how to:

  • Reduce large requests into smaller and smaller problem statements designed to achieve specific goals
  • Have a clear focus on your customers and value that can be delivered
  • Create excellent, well-written, easy to understand user stories that clearly communicate the problem to be solved


The User Story Workshop course is perfect for team members who are involved
in writing user stories. This could include:

  • People with User Story experience looking to further their Scrum skills
  • Individuals who are new to the User Story technique and want to immerse themselves in Scrum
  • Developers wanting to learn how to apply Scrum effectively while defining product features
  • Team members, especially Product Owners, who want to advance their knowledge in Scrum
  • Business Analysts who aren't familiar with Scrum, but are working with agile development teams
