INVEST

The acronym INVEST is a set of criteria that helps the Agile Team to formulate and assess the quality of a user story. If the current user story doesn’t meet these criteria, the Team may reword it or even rewrite it. A good user story should be : I – Independent (of all other user stories) N – Negotiable (not too specific so changes can occur) V – Valuable (functionality that is deemed valuable) E – Estimable (in terms of working time to a good approximation) S – Small (understand small enough to fit within an iteration) T – Testable (to check that development is complete and done correctly)
