Stories are the primary items in a circle in Agemba. A story describes something we want to “have,” either functionality or service, which can be planned and completed. A story will typically be described by a user story, describing the request seen from the user’s perspective.

A story can be assigned to a user or team, either for preparing it, working on it or reviewing it. A story’s value and effort/cost can be estimated, which can be used for prioritization and planning.

Stories are visible in the StoryMap Tree in the “What” folder. They can either be part of a larger epic or categorized in folders. The hierarchical structure of stories can be viewed in the Storymap Tree.
