user story format

Rachel Davies and Brian Marick had a conversation recently that bore some powerful fruit. Discussing the “As a [role], I want [ability], so that [benefit]” style of writing stories, Rachel comments:

“I dropped this story format about 2 years ago because it encourages people to think of story cards as mini requirements documents”

Her subsequent justification is all about people and interactions, and makes a lot of sense to me.
