What is the main purpose of user stories in an agile setting?

  1. Placeholders for future conversations
  2. To fully document exactly what the team is supposed to build
  3. To be used as a definition of scope
  4. As a way of keeping our stakeholders honest

Correct Answer: A

User stories represent possible options for what we could build in order to reach some goal. They are not intended as commitments about what we will build.  Other tools, such as problem or opportunity statements, business objectives, and context diagrams provide a better definition of scope.
