| 7 Story: The Requirement. A good story follows the INVEST thumb rule. Story# 001 Priority Points As Adam, I want to be able to read posts from my subscribed feeds on my mobile phone so that I can read them while I am travelling. Acceptance Criteria Given that I am a subscriber to a feed and that I am equipped with a portable device able to access the internet while I am on the move, when I choose to synchronize my subscriptions, then new posts from the feeds are downloaded on my device. Given that I am a subscriber to a feed and have synchronized my subscriptions on my mobile, when I am in an area where I have no network coverage, then I should still be able to read the posts that I have subscribed to. Success: * Display the number of unread posts for each subscribed feed. Exceptions: * If no network coverage Cannot connect to the internet. * If cannot find feed Error in synchronizing feed Development Tasks: * Create an XML file using RSS2.0 standard. * Update XML file when posts are added / modified / removed. * Update XML file when comments are added / modified / removed * Publish the URL to the XML file on the blog.

Three Bucket Iterative Method: With each iteration, ask the sponsors to divide the list of story cards in three buckets of priority – High, Medium, Low. Repeat this process till the time you have only one card in the high, medium and low buckets. With every sprint repeat this method with the most recent stack. The Deck of Cards Method: Print all the stories on index cards and arrange them in an order such that the one at the top is the most important and the one at the bottom is the least important.
