User Story

A user story tells a short story from the user's point of view to describe a desired functionality to the system. The story is kept in simple language so that also participants without technical background can understand it. The user story is intended to bridge the gap between development and customers. How exactly the functionality is implemented is irrelevant for a user story. A user story is also flexible and adapts to new insights: It can first only be roughly grasped and filled with more and more details until it is detailed enough to be implemented.

A user story is structured according to the following pattern: As (user type) I would like to (do the following) in order to (achieve a specific goal).
