Paul Hammant's Blog: Candidate Stories
So I was reminded recently that when speaking to executive teams about Agile, you should have a couple of candidate stories written for their domain:
Story 11. Title: pro-rata refunds Narrative: In order to meet regulations concerning termination of policies, As an underwriter, I want to be able to cancel policies, effective mid term, and offer a pro-rata refund of premium.
The second one builds on the first:
Story 12. Title: pro-rata refunds Narrative: In order to correct erroneously canceled policies, As an underwriter, I want to be able to reinstate policies effective from their cancellation date provided that it not in the past, and claw-back refunded premiums on reinstatement
Them there is the ‘epic’ for them too:
Epic 3. Title: Underwriting Narrative: In order to collect premium, As an underwriter, I want to have new business, renewals, mid-term-adjustments, cancellations and reinstatements.
Ideally your pursuit team will brainstorm on the right couple of stories before going into the client meeting. Then, when “what is a story, again” comes up, you can pull up some reserve slides quickly.
