Abstract

User Stories (US) are the most commonly used requirements artifacts within agile methods such as eXtreme Programming (XP) and Scrum. They are written in natural language using prose or following a specific template. In practice, many templates have been proposed with no semantic for each syntax used in these templates. Within this research, we first propose the unified model for US templates and provide semantic of each syntax. Then, we adapt the goal-oriented modeling language for analyzing US sets; it is called Rationale Tree (RT). It allows identifying dependencies between US and provides a global view of the systems which allows improving the planning activities, and therefore the development life cycle of agile methods.
