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.
