Write the same but different words

Write the same but different words

It’s all in how you say it. Or, in the case of this video, how you write it. In less than 2 minutes, this video will send a powerful message. It’s about writing from perspective.

After watching it, I immediately thought of how a user story can communicate a message differently, compared to a standard “shall statement” requirement.

Here are as few formats for you to compare. Which would you use?

As a <role>, I want <goal>

As a <role>, I want <goal> so <reason>

Given <dependency/constraint>, as a <role>, I want <goal> so <reason>

Do you have a preferred user story format that you use?  Please include it as a comment and have a beautiful day.
