Tony Heap:Story Splitting for Beginners and Experts Alike

User story splitting is an established practice on agile delivery teams. But in my experience, it’s really difficult to do well.
In this presentation I’ve pulled together everything I’ve learned about story splitting. I'll talk about why, when and how to split stories. I'll present different story splitting techniques and, most importantly, I'll show you what order to use them in. I'll also explain why I think it's dangerous to play with spikes!
If you're new to story splitting, this presentation is for you. If you think you already know how to split user stories, think again!
