User Stories and Agile Sprints Planning
Once we had enough understanding domain, users, and underlying applications, we started drafting user stories. At this time we had completed a number of interviews with users, product managers, operations, business. We also did competitive analysis to benchmark product features and experience
A typical user story format..
As a [user/persona], I would like to ..... [basic user goal], So that.... [expected outcome]
- Each user story was validated and prioritized with the business product manager.
- Based on the priority and importance the design sprints were planned.
- We maintained design sprint ahead of development sprint to allow sufficient time for UX-related activities and resolve any conflicts with development team well ahead of time.
- At the end of each sprint, the application was validated with business product manager and test users for immediate feedback
