Skip to 0 minutes and 2 secondsAll right, so we have our epic story. As Trent the Tech I want to identify a part that needs replacing so that I can figure out my next steps. >> Sounds good. >> All right, so Trent needs to identify the part, and then figure out how to get it. And then his reward is that he figures out what he does next. >> Right. >> So let's going ahead and story board this. >> Okay. So I think the place to start will probably be that Trent inspects the HVAC, and identifies that it needs a part to replace. >> Okay I'll go ahead draw this, but do you mind flashing out the details on paper? >> Sure.

So price, an the availability, and customer contracts. >> Right. >> So, the logical next step would be to let the customer know about his needs.

Skip to 1 minute and 43 secondsAll right. Let's go ahead and flush out some child stories. >> Sounds good.
