[stawr-ee, stohr-ee oh tahyp]
A stereotype or template for a Story or Epic. Storyotypes are used to capture re-useful information common to many Stories; in particular, Storyotypes are used to capture common Standards of Care.
The existence of the Storyotype will give the Team Member the courage to say to the sales guy: ‘ok, we’ll have to add a new Story for that sales call to the Backlog and talk to the Product Owner about prioritization...’ I find that the act of storyotyping reminds Team Members of the fact that all work is managed with the Backlog – that there is no magic, nothing is free.
The Definition of Done is often common across Stories that are of the same Storyotype .
