Stories are written in a format that forces us to think of the business value /benefit achieved by implementing this story (Economics)Stories are concise and to the point, helping everyone to remain focussed (Flow)As a “promise for a conversation”, stories encourage customer collaboration and face-to-face conversations (Communication)
