Thank you and congratulations on taking this class, User Stories: How to Capture and Manage Requirements for Agile Product Management and Business Analysis with Scrum. In this class, you will be given proven methods to create, maintain, and manage your requirements using user stories as part of an agile scrum team.
I know you will get value from this class as it gives you a full introduction to the concept of agile user stories for managing product requirements. I then walk you step-by-step through everything involved in managing requirements using user stories including writing, combining, and splitting complex user stories. Following this, I give you a complete overview of epics and themes and how they can be used to capture and group complex requirements in any team or business.
