User story

A user story represents the needs of users. It is a piece of business value that the team can deliver to key stakeholders within a sprint. User stories are generally written in the following format:

As a (user) I want to (goal to be accomplished) so that I can (reason behind the goal)

A good user story will follow the INVEST model. INVEST is an acronym that stands for Independent, Negotiable, Valuable, Estimable, Small, and Testable.
