User Stories Don't Help Users: Introducing Persona Stories
User Stories were made popular in software development through an approach called “Extreme Programming”. Part of their popularity arises from being concise. Yet they are in many respects problematic and of doubtful benefit to users.
In this Master Class webinar, user-centered design expert and IxDF course editor, William Hudson, will unveil the surprising origins of user stories and how simple changes in their structure can make them much more effective in the form of persona stories.
- The challenges of software requirements and how important they are to success
- How user stories came about and what they replaced
- Why user stories don't actually help users
- How persona stories can more closely link software development to UX design
If you've worked closely with software teams or been forced to write "As a user, I want…" hundreds of times, this Master Class is for you. Join this webinar to enable you to push for real change in the relationship between user experience and software development.
