  447. <p name="0206" id="0206" class="graf graf--p graf-after--p">As I write more job stories, I’ve been paying attention to characteristics which make some stories better than others. When a story is well done, it helps me and my team cut right to what needs to be discussed and puts us all on the same page — making the product design process dramatically better.<br>Here are 5 tips which will help when writing Job Stories:</p>

  450. <p name="b895" id="b895" class="graf graf--p graf-after--h4">When <a href="https://twitter.com/marksweep" data-href="https://twitter.com/marksweep" class="markup--anchor markup--p-anchor" rel="noopener" target="_blank">David Wu</a> described to me how a situation can capture a whole set of conditions, it struck a chord with me. When I add more context to a situation, I’ve found that it’s easier to design a working solution which also handles any anxieties which can push a customer away from using a product or feature.<br>Let’s compare:</p>
  451. <ol class="postList"><li name="af95" id="af95" class="graf graf--li graf-after--p">When I want something to eat….</li><li name="60d3" id="60d3" class="graf graf--li graf-after--li">When I’m in a rush and want a something to eat….</li><li name="4fc5" id="4fc5" class="graf graf--li graf-after--li">When I’m in a rush, I’m starving and want something to eat….</li><li name="93f6" id="93f6" class="graf graf--li graf-after--li">When I’m in a rush, starving, need something I can eat with one hand while ‘on the go’, am not sure when the next time I’ll be able to eat, …</li></ol>
  452. <p name="e9c6" id="e9c6" class="graf graf--p graf-after--li">The more context we have for the situation, the better I can design a solution. In version #1, a sit down restaurant will work. In version #4, perhaps a slice of pizza or snickers bar will work best.</p>

  454. <h4 name="0c1d" id="0c1d" class="graf graf--h4 graf-after--figure"><strong class="markup--strong markup--h4-strong">2. Job Stories Come From Real People Not Personas</strong></h4>
  455. <p name="5bb6" id="5bb6" class="graf graf--p graf-after--h4">Because they are a <a href="http://alanklement.blogspot.com/2013/03/focus-on-relationships-skip-personas.html" data-href="http://alanklement.blogspot.com/2013/03/focus-on-relationships-skip-personas.html" class="markup--anchor markup--p-anchor" rel="noopener" target="_blank">mashup of assumptions and attributes</a>, personas can have a destructive effect on product design. They can give a false sense of knowing the customer and thus can really leave gaps in design. For example, you can’t ask a persona about their anxieties, why they chose <em class="markup--em markup--p-em">Product A </em>vs <em class="markup--em markup--p-em">Product B</em>, what else was going on when they chose <em class="markup--em markup--p-em">Product A </em>vs <em class="markup--em markup--p-em">Product B, </em>or that when they first opened your app they didn’t know what to do first….</p>
  456. <p name="7c7c" id="7c7c" class="graf graf--p graf-after--p">Job Stories can only come from real customer interviews. Before designing a feature or new product, you must talk to real people and uncover all the anxieties and contexts which were in play when they used your or a competitor’s product.<br>If you are interested in learning about techniques on how to conduct an interview, listen to the <a href="http://jobstobedone.org/radio/the-mattress-interview-part-one/" data-href="http://jobstobedone.org/radio/the-mattress-interview-part-one/" class="markup--anchor markup--p-anchor" rel="noopener" target="_blank"><em class="markup--em markup--p-em">The Mattress Interview</em></a><em class="markup--em markup--p-em"> </em>with <a href="https://twitter.com/chriscbs" data-href="https://twitter.com/chriscbs" class="markup--anchor markup--p-anchor" rel="noopener" target="_blank">Chris Spiek</a> and <a href="https://twitter.com/bmoesta" data-href="https://twitter.com/bmoesta" class="markup--anchor markup--p-anchor" rel="noopener" target="_blank">Bob Moesta</a>.

  458. <h4 name="da5a" id="da5a" class="graf graf--h4 graf-after--p">3. Design Modular Job Stories Which Features (Solutions) Can Plug Into</h4>
  459. <p name="e30a" id="e30a" class="graf graf--p graf-after--h4">When designing job stories, it’s important to not commingle them with solutions. This is another important distinction from user stories which encourage defining implementation.</p>
  460. <p name="3959" id="3959" class="graf graf--p graf-after--p"><strong class="markup--strong markup--p-strong">When commingling personas ( or situations ) and solutions….</strong></p>
  461. <p name="639d" id="639d" class="graf graf--p graf-after--p">Below is from a source describing how to write effective user stories. The author encourages to also create sub stories which ‘add detail’ to help develop the user story. Here is an example:</p>
  462. <blockquote name="78e0" id="78e0" class="graf graf--blockquote graf-after--p"><em class="markup--em markup--blockquote-em">As a user, I can backup my entire hard drive.</em></blockquote>
  463. <p name="eefe" id="eefe" class="graf graf--p graf-after--blockquote">…and after adding detail….</p>
  464. <blockquote name="3865" id="3865" class="graf graf--blockquote graf-after--p"><em class="markup--em markup--blockquote-em">As a power user, I can specify files or folders to backup based on file size, date created and date modified.</em></blockquote>
  465. <p name="e6a8" id="e6a8" class="graf graf--p graf-after--blockquote">and…..</p>
  466. <blockquote name="10e2" id="10e2" class="graf graf--blockquote graf-after--p"><em class="markup--em markup--blockquote-em">As a user, I can indicate folders not to backup so that my backup drive isn’t filled up with things I don’t need saved.</em></blockquote>
  467. <p name="43d4" id="43d4" class="graf graf--p graf-after--blockquote">Given the examples above, suppose the <em class="markup--em markup--p-em">power users </em>didn’t care much to <em class="markup--em markup--p-em">specify which files or folders to back up bases on file size, date created….. </em>In this case how do you figure out what went wrong. Is your persona wrong? Is the feature wrong? Is it the wrong feature for the persona?</p>

  470. <p name="3226" id="3226" class="graf graf--p graf-after--p">The bottom line here is that when jobs are seen as separate from solutions, you notice that they can be explored differently and at different times. Another benefit of modular stories and solutions is how you can begin to see where jobs overlap and several jobs can end up sharing a common solution.</p>
  471. <p name="8f2b" id="8f2b" class="graf graf--p graf-after--p">How job stories relate to solutions and other job stories is a topic onto its own. In the mean time, start off with visualizing the relationship between job stories and features like this:</p>

  520. Bonjour/Hi!

  525. Je m’intéresse à la place que je peux avoir dans ce monde. En tant qu’humain, en tant que membre d’une famille et en tant qu’associé d’une coopérative. De temps en temps, je fais aussi des <a href="https://github.com/davidbgk" title="Principalement sur Github mais aussi ailleurs">trucs techniques</a>. Et encore plus rarement, <a href="/david/talks/" title="En ce moment je laisse plutôt la place aux autres">j’en parle</a>.
