VA L U E Benefits for all team members Product owners and managers know what kind of products they are developing and who they are competing with. Developers know the context of the product and its sprints, can prioritise better and see purpose. Designers know the context and desired outcomes of the user and can design against these accordingly. QA engineers know the essential use and test cases, can prioritise better.
QUOTE “ because people are so focused on Often, the who and how, they totally miss the why. When you start to understand the why, your mind is then open to think of creative and original ways to solve the problem. ” — A L A N K L E M E N T, Product designer & engineer Source: Replacing The User Story With The Job Story, Medium, https://medium.com/the-job-to-be-done/replacing-the-user-story-with-the-job-story-af7cdee10c27
