    User stories are short, simple descriptions of a feature told from the perspective of the person who desires the new capability, usually a user or customer of the system. They typically follow a simple template: As a < type of user >, I want < some goal > so that < some reason >.

    Detail can be added to user stories in two ways: By splitting a user story into multiple, smaller user stories and /or by adding “conditions of satisfaction.”

    Who writes user stories?

    Anyone can write user stories. However, it is the product owner's responsibility to make sure a product backlog of agile user stories exists, but that doesn’t mean that the product owner is the only one who writes them. Actually user/customer should be stating his requirements to Product Owner, therefore participation of stakeholders is more important.

    When are user stories written?

    User stories are written throughout the agile project. Usually a story-writing workshop is held near the start of the agile project. Everyone on the team participates with the goal of creating a product backlog that fully describes the functionality to be added over the course of the project or a three- to six-month release cycle within it. Bigger stories may be called as Epics which will be decomposed into smaller stories that fit more readily into a single iteration. Additionally, new stories can be written and added to the product backlog at any time and by anyone.

    Do user stories replace a requirements document?

    Agile projects, especially Scrum ones, use a product backlog, which is a prioritized list of the functionality to be developed in a product or service. Although product backlog items can be whatever the team desires, user stories have emerged as the best and most popular form of product backlog items.

    While a product backlog can be thought of as a replacement for the requirements document of a traditional project, it is important to remember that the written part of an agile user story (“As a user, I want …”) is incomplete until the discussions about that story occur.

    Does Scrum Include User Stories?

    Scrum Guide is not speaking on user story and estimation techniques directly, however, there are a few agile principles giving guidelines.

    • Business people and developers must work together daily throughout the project. The Agile Manifesto.
    • The best architectures, requirements, and designs emerge from self-organizing teams. The Agile Manifesto
