Capturing intent and creating shared understanding with stakeholders is challenging in any environment. Sometimes elaborating stories can feel more like an art form than a science. This immersive workshop allows organisations to learn through doing.
You'll come along armed with real work from your context and be assisted by an experienced coach to create, elaborate and manage your backlog. You'll leave this session with work done and real practical tools to take back to your workplace.
Learn how to break down your work and get on the same page with your stakeholders, so that you can deliver value sooner.
Whether you're a product owner, business analyst or any subject matter expert responsible for creating value – this is the workshop for you.
Elabor8’s User Story Workshop teaches key Agile concepts and techniques to help you identify and maximise the value from your work. Leveraging the framework used in your organisation we’ll show you how to create User Stories and use techniques to organise and order your backlog. You’ll learn fun and interesting ways to size your work and we’ll uncover common splitting patterns that will help you break down work to ensure you are delivering value sooner.
You'll leave this workshop with a toolkit to help you connect with your customers and business stakeholders to find the value and build shared understanding around the most valuable work.

Elabor8 worked closely with us to design a tailored full day workshop for our whole continuous delivery team, to help them better understand how to write great User Stories. The workshops were led by a range of Elabor8 trainers who made them informative, fun and participatory and we received very positive feedback from all who attended. Nish, Sarah and Juan from Elabor8 were able to use practical examples from their experience to help bring the theory to life and embed the practices with the teams. We are seeing improvements in our User Stories already as the teams now try and use what they have learnt.
