Stories are a way for development teams to express the work that they’re doing. Too often I see teams that either use just one way to do this or don’t use any format at all. I thought I’d collect some links to some different story formats for capturing development work. I’m not saying one way is better than others, I’m just presenting some options from around the web. If you have others, please feel free to leave them in the comments.
