Splitting User Stories 

Hi all, 

I keep encountering a recurring issue when developing user stories from Epics that the business have devised. 

I come up with a number of stories which capture the requirements of the system users and present them to the development team. At this point we review them along with the acceptance criteria and discuss INVEST and potential solutions. 

However. when we move onto the sizing a number of them come back as being too large and I'm asked to further split the stories. Every time I have had this issue it seems that what the developers want is for me to split them into tasks  for them. 

Has anyone else come across this problem? If so, how do you manage it?

Thanks, 

Aaron

In my opinion, as long as your stories are sized to be started, developed and completed involving Dev & Test within one sprint cycle, they are good from a BA perspective.

Dividing them into tasks is Not a BA responsibility.

Previously this meant having to stay late at the office, writing cumbersome queries to extract business information from transactional data. Lucky for you, you’ve recently started using Temporal Tables in SQL...

Current State For many years now, the most commonly used metaphor on Business Analysis has been the “Bridge”. However, in recent past, some in the BA community have started revisiting the metaphor resulting in a debate on how relevant it is. Of course, the value business analysis can provide for an organization does not depend on how i...
