User Story Training for PMs
and Free User Story Discovery Canvas
Participants learn about the Business Analyst’s agile mindset and the essential tips and best practices of key agile BA techniques like User Stories, Story Mapping, and writing Acceptance Criteria — while the optional third day Agile Business Analysis Extension covers refining and prioritizing the backlog and ensuring User Stories are ready for planning meetings (by creating and using their Definition of Ready). Workshop participants have access to a variety of templates, examples, checklists and resources on the class portal.

The online class experience uses IAG’s Collaborative Learning platform where participants work together using techniques like Discovery Canvases to write, elaborate, refine and prioritize user stories and satisfy their Definition of Ready.
