Story and task management

A story is a brief statement of a product requirement or a business case. A story should be small enough to be completed in one sprint.

The estimated effort required to complete a story is measured in story points, with more points being assigned to stories requiring more effort. Story points are arbitrary measurements of the effort (not necessarily the time) required to complete a story, based on the estimates of group members. The work required for a story can be broken down into discreet scrum tasks.

After creating stories and tasks, manage and track them to completion through the story and scrum task progress boards.
