User Stories: What is the best way to capture and manage 

Hello All,

I need you input/help on the best way to capture and manage user stories through out the delivery of a solution (i.e Case or problem Management systems - development and implementation).

1. Do you use a tool to capture and management? what tool? what tools are available for such?

2. Do you capture and manage manually i.e. word documents, spread sheets etc? do you have templates to share?

3. in the management of US do you assign unique numbers to each US? 

4. Do you versions them?

5. How do you align Acceptance Criteria, Test Cases to your US? 

6. How do you know when you have an epic and not a US?

7. How do you decompose the user stories into smaller sets of US?

8. How do you generate and document technical stories from existing US?

Thanks

Jay

Re: User Stories: What is the best way to capture and manage 

My organization uses JIRA and I feel its one of the best tools I've ever used.

1. Do you use a tool to capture and management? what tool? what tools are available for such?

JIRA (other tools - IBM RTC, Mingle, Trello)

2. Do you capture and manage manually i.e. word documents, spread sheets etc? do you have templates to share?

If using tool like mentioned above, would not manage in Word document or Spreadsheet. If I've to (given no tool is available), then in word or spreadsheet - but these ideally should be in sharepoint. 

Templates vary per project. Ideally table with columns: UseCase#, AS A, I WANT, SO THAT 

3. in the management of US do you assign unique numbers to each US? 

Tools would assign unique numbers. Otherwise, US1 for main components. US1.1 for sub components.

4. Do you versions them?

Of course!

5. How do you align Acceptance Criteria, Test Cases to your US? 

Acceptance criteria should signify what is the acceptable quality of the US output.

6. How do you know when you have an epic and not a US?

Thumb rule: If the US cannot be completed in a sprint (or 2), its too big (epic).

7. How do you decompose the user stories into smaller sets of US?

8. How do you generate and document technical stories from existing US?

What kind of technical stories? My frontend stories have backend API to be implemented. I write acceptance criteria for API functionality.

Nowadays, companies like Audi and HSBC, use IT systems in everything they do. Does that make them to be IT companies rather than banks? Most would probably agree that HSBC is a bank, just as Audi is a car manufacturer. But what about digital banks such as Chime or companies offering digital products? In digital companies, most of the employees work...
