A way of expressing a reasonably small unit of work that needs to be done to meet a particular customer or user need and thereby provide business value. User stories are articulated in such a way that they are understandable for both business people and technical people. It is a common practice to include a sentence in a format similar to “As a <user type>, I want <feature>, so that I can <desired outcome>.” A user story is also an “invitation to a conversation” where a team makes sure they have sufficient understanding of the business need, such that when the conversation is over, they can executive against it with little need for further dialogue.
