Elephant Carpaccio: A Metaphor for Thinly Slicing User Stories

Too large user stories are a major contributor to Scrum teams not meeting their sprint goals. Through discussion and group activities we’ll discover how smaller user stories can improve team performance as well as help us deliver more value to the customer.

This presentation will begin with a discussion of the benefits of small user stories to both the team and to the customer, and review various techniques for splitting any user story. We’ll conclude with a group exercise where we will create micro stories for building a small application.
