7614Re: [agile-usability] Origins of user stories
- Mar 27, 2013I'd question whether the role slot in user stories often gets used in
that way. The use-case "role" and the user story "role" tend to be
used fairly differently in my experience.
We hit the same name - different usage problem again.
They're normally much closer to customer archetypes / persona in my
experience (indeed most agile ux folk I know who adopt the story
format slot persona into the role hole).
