Splitting a User Story or Epic by events or business scenarios is a common method but it can be hard to split well. Making each step of the workflow a User Story is only desirable if the step provides business value to the end-user. To split a User Story based on events, you need to find the fewest number of workflow steps that create a business value.

Description

How to Split a User Story Using a Simple Workflow Breakdown

Sequence of Events is a quick method for splitting an Epic. If the Epic is large or overly complex, try creating a quick list of the steps in the workflow to find all lower-level activities. Then turn each activity into a User Story with role and business value.

You might be able to move the remaining steps to future Releases or Sprints. For simple workflows, a technique known as “Sequence of Events” might be enough. We will deal with more complex workflows in another lecture of the this course.
