Regularly test and measure the features your team produces, involving real users as much as possible.

Accurately representing the needs and responses of real life users is a key part of the product owner’s role.

  1. Schedule acceptance meetings throughout the iteration, either at regular intervals or whenever a given user story is completed. Use the latest working build of the product, and exercise the functionality live.

  2. Test the functionality implemented matches what is specified in the user story. Also review the user interface and user document associated with the user store if any.

  3. Enter any issues in the artifact’s Comments field.

  4. Update the user store artifact to reflect the outcome.

    • If a user story is accepted, change the artifact status to “Accepted” or the equivalent.

    • If a user story is not accepted, change the artifact status back to “In Development” or the equivalent, for further work. You can review it again in another acceptance meeting.
