Listen to the Software Process and Measurement Cast 283.  The SPaMCAST 283 features our essay on user stories.  A user story is a brief, simple requirement statement from the user’s perspective. User stories are narratives describing who is interacting with the application, how they are interacting with the application and the benefit they derive from that interaction.

If you would  like to read the original blog entries that formed the basis of this essay they can be found at:
