In the last part of our Azure DevOps series we set up the sample project "Seamless Mobility" and described the requirements in terms of epics and features. This article focuses on the refinement of the requirements in the form of stories and tasks. The goal is to plan a sprint and run it supported by Azure DevOps. We will also focus on communication and collaboration within the team.
Since the backlog already contains epics and features, the details can be described in the form of user stories. User stories have become the standard for describing requirements from a user perspective. They follow the pattern "As <role> I want <target>, so that <benefit>.
In the backlog view, the order of the epics and features as well as the status can be used to identify the currently prioritized items. User stories are now derived for the highest prioritized features.
