Topic: Requirements Capture with User Stories in an Agile Environment
This will be a joint meeting between the AgileKC group and the Kansas City Section of the International Institute for Business Analysis
(IIBA).   Dinner will be provided.

N.B. This is a week earlier than our usually scheduled meeting and is expected to be heavily attended.  Please RSVP to [email protected] if you plan on attending.

Over the last ten years agile software development practices have gone from ‘under the radar’ practices used in small independent projects to enterprise wide initiatives used in many of the Fortune 500 Companies.  Agile development is a proven and established methodology for organizing teams and delivering software.  Yet it is still often misinterpreted and even worse the root cause of misguided attempts at process improvement by not fully understanding what agile is and what it is not.

At this joint meeting we’ll try to alleviate some of this confusion.

We’ll discuss the history and basics of the agile process in general, go over some common agile terms so we all have a consistent understanding and then delve into the agile concept of a User Story.

The User Story supports many specific agile practices and is a great stepping off point on an organizations journey to understanding and implementing an Agile Process.

We hope to see you there!
