About this Guide

Feature cards are the Agile equivalent of articulating detailed requirements. A feature (sometimes called a story) describes in plain English what the system has to do. It is written from the user perspective so for instance, a feature might be “The customer must be able to book a trip to any European city including travel and accommodation”. Working on the “test first” principle, each feature card must also state how the feature will be tested for completion. Once a feature is written it is incorporated in the Features Tracking Matrix where it is prioritised and allocated to an iteration.
