User Story

A user story is a software system requirement. Usually they are short and consists of several sentences. User stories are a quick way of handling customer requirements without having to deal with large formal requirement documents and tedious tasks related to maintaining them. The intention is to be able to respond faster and with less overhead to rapidly changing real-world requirements.

Well-written User Stories are a core component of Agile Development. User Stories are always a challenging stage for Agile project teams, and for success of any new project this needs to be managed properly.

There are no standard processes defined for the development of the User Story. Below we describe a method for exploring and capturing the User Wish and generating User Stories using a mind map.
