Miscommunication and poor user stories derail development

Today, poor requirements, silos, and a lack of alignment between stakeholders introduce many of the bugs that devastate software releases. Testers and developers must release complex systems in days or weeks, but are often equipped with incomplete and ambiguous user stories. These fragmented written requirements map poorly to complex systems, while there’s no quick or reliable way to identify the impact of change requests across related components. Miscommunication in turn creates bugs that are missed by testing, leading to costly rework in development. Cross-functional teams today need a single source of truth for capturing and collaboratively improving requirements, while communicating clear “living documentation” across software delivery teams.

Create better user stories


Enhanced user stories and optimised tests drive better development 

With Test Modeller and ScopeMaster, cross-functional teams can collaboratively enhance user stories before they impact development, while generating the functional tests needed to deliver quality systems in-sprint. ScopeMaster’s hyperautomated Jira analysis and Test Modeller’s Traceability Lab combine to provide automated analysis of user stories stored across tools, creating a real-time checklist for requirements improvement. With these actionable insights, teams can rapidly and collaboratively improve written user stories, driving up the overall requirements quality score in Test Modeller’s Traceability Lab. Cross-functional teams can craft the user stories they need to avoid miscommunication and rework, without spending hours in costly sprint planning meetings.

Test Modeller further synchronises the fast-changing written user stories in intuitive visual flows, maintaining accurate “living documentation” for fast-changing systems. The precise specifications map complex logic clearly, facilitating rigorous in-sprint testing and accurate development. Evolving user stories and change requests can be quickly incorporated, maintaining a single source of truth for fast-changing systems. Reusable subflows further make it quick and easy to model end-to-end scenarios, rapidly engineering complete requirements with traceability between components. Once teams are happy with their overall requirements score in Test Modeller’s Traceability Lab, they can automatically generate user stories and subtasks in Jira. A single click also creates optimised scripts and data, removing testing bottlenecks and design bugs to deliver quality with every rapid release.

Shift Left quality and rigorously test fast-changing systems

Watch this short example of rapid requirements optimisation for Jira user stories, and discover how:

  1. Automated user story analysis from ScopeMaster identifies ambiguity and incompleteness while they are quick and affordable to fix, avoiding miscommunication and rework in development.

  2. Test Modeller’s Traceability Lab provides analysis of user stories in requirements management tools, providing a quality score and flagging risks to resolve for higher quality development.

  3. The “shift left” quality metrics provide a granular view with which to improve quality by design, identifying issues like ambiguity, incompleteness, poor sizing, and a lack of linked test cases.

  4. Synchronizing evolving user stories in visual flows creates logically precise specifications of complex systems, maintaining the requirements developers need to deliver quality in-sprint.

  5. The Traceability Lab provides a real-time checklist of requirements improvements, validating when user stories have been enhanced within the unambiguous visual flowcharts.

  6. Linking together reusable subprocesses quickly builds end-to-end flowcharts of integrated processes, rapidly creating “living documentation” for complex systems.

  7. The completed requirements models automatically generate Jira user stories and subtasks, enabling rapid and unsiloed requirements communication across projects and teams.

  8. The same flows auto-generate and maintain optimized test scripts and data, catching functional bugs in-sprint to deliver quality with every rapid release.

  9. Cross-functional teams can collaborate in parallel from shared visual flows and matching user stories, working in their favorite tools and formats to deliver quality software in short sprints.
