Writing good story 1-liners
As a developers, I want to have a story 1-liner from the BA team…
When writing a story 1-liner, there is a specific format, this is not an accident.
Each part is there for a reason and helps the person receiving the story know what to do when you’re not around.
As Anakin Skywalker, I want to shoot a torpedo into the exhaust pipe of the deathstar,
so that I can disable the deathstar and prevent the destruction of my home planet
Principle — who’s eyes the story is written from
Task — The recommended approach to completing the objective
Objective - The overall point of the task
Why this is important:
Objective is important because it gives the person carrying out the task a direction if the recommended approach(task) can’t be done.
Imagine a combat medic being dropped into a combat zone
as a medic, I want to shoot some bad guys on the way to my friend,
so that I can save my friend's life
If the recommended approach of shooting their way to their friend, doesn’t work out, they have a fallback plan of just saving their life using whatever method they deem appropriate.
Lets say if instead, they can sneak his way to save their friend’s life.
