Right Size Your Stories: Splitting, Defining & Refining

A legend is sung of when England was young and knights were brave and bold…. Wait, that’s not the story… (though kudos to anyone who got the reference).

If your backlog reads like a list of fables, urban legends, or epic battles between user and system, it’s time to right size your stories and PBIs. In this interactive, hands-on class, we’ll figure out just what “right sizing” means for your team, identify stories that are too big to attempt, and learn different approaches for getting those stories to fit.
