Our contribution in the sprint.
A story describes the contribution of a team in a sprint to a feature of the stage.
A tried and tested, very precise formulation is:
Why do we call it a story?
The term story has become established in the Agile world. They describe results that are available at the end of a sprint. It has been shown that even outside the software world, in mechatronics and other areas, the precision in describing the results of a sprint benefits greatly if they are written in story format. Most digital tools for Agile Boards also use the term and provide a predefined work item type “Story“, which we can easily adopt in mechatronics as well.
Examples of stories in mechatronics:
What is different from pure software?
A story does not always deliver a function that can be perceived by customers. In mechatronics, it is even rather rare. It can have a wide variety of results:
…Whereby all of this actually also applies to software projects. There are also these types of stories.
What makes a good story?
Writing good stories takes practice. Agile coaches will help the POT with this. Good stories negotiated with the team add up to a very clear mission for the team for the next sprint.
A sequence of stories that belong to a feature describe the way to get to the desired feature in the stage.
