Writing user stories is harder than you think. Trying to capture the functionality the user wants is not always that simple. User stories are one of the most applicable techniques introduced by Agile and many organizations have been using them in place of their stakeholder requirements in Waterfall environments because of their ease of use and relatability to their users.
