User Stories and Backlog Management Playbook 

Writing good user stories is fundamental to the success of the project, as it defines the goal that needs to be achieved at the end of each sprint.

What is a user story?

A user story is the smallest unit of work in an agile framework. It’s an end goal, not a feature, expressed from the software user’s perspective.

A user story is an informal, general explanation of a software feature written from the perspective of the end-user or customer. 

The purpose of a user story is to articulate how a piece of work will deliver a particular value back to the customer. Note that "customers" don't have to be external end-users in the traditional sense, they can also be internal customers or colleagues within your organization who depend on your team.
