what is it
User stories are a technique coming from the Agile methodology, used to describe the requirements of a digital service from a user perspective (in contrast with product-based requirement documents). The user stories detail all the elements and interactions that enable the envisioned user experience with a mobile app or website, and connect the work of the design team (developing interaction flows and UI components) with the process of back-end and front-end development, enabling a better integrated workflow in sprints (rather than a water-fall development process).
