Story: slicing stories

December 11th, 2020

A couple of us in the team wanted to experiment with slicing stories smaller. And hammering out some of the details about complexity. So we came up with slicing smaller.


At the time we were working a bit less as a team than we wanted to. So we wanted to add something to prevent pushing ideas through without the buy-in from the entire team. So we added another part to the challenge.



  • Slice a story as small as possible

  • But it must still provide customer value

  • Everyone in the team agrees to the solution


Part A - Story: slicing stories as teambuilding

Part B - Story: constraining a story until there is no complexity left
