    • Title: A Framework to Improve User Story Sets through CollaborationSpeaker: Salih Göktuğ KöseAbstract: Agile methodologies have become increasingly popular in recent years. Due to itsinherent nature, agile methodologies involve stakeholders with a wide range of expertiseand require interaction between them, relying on collaboration and customer involve-ment. Hence, agile methodologies encourage collaboration between all team membersso that more efficient and effective processes are maintained. Generating requirementscan be challenging, as it requires the participation of multiple stakeholders who describevarious aspects of the project and possess a shared understanding of essential concepts.One simple method for capturing requirements using natural language is through userstories, which document the agreed-upon properties of a project. Stakeholders tryto strive for completeness while generating user stories, but the final user story setmay still be flawed. To address this issue, we propose SCOUT: Supporting User StoryCompleteness via Knowledge Graphs, which employs a natural language processingpipeline to extract key concepts from user stories and construct a knowledge graphby connecting related terms. The knowledge graph and different heuristics are thenutilized to enhance the quality and completeness of the user story sets by generatingsuggestions for the stakeholders. We perform a user study to evaluate SCOUT anddemonstrate its performance in constructing user stories. The quantitative and quali-tative results indicate that SCOUT significantly enhance the quality and completenessof the user story sets. Our contribution is threefold. First, we develop heuristics tosuggest new concepts to include in user stories by considering both the individuals’and other team members’ contributions. Second, we implement an open-source collab-orative tool to support writing user stories and ensuring their quality. Third, we sharethe experimental setup and materials to evaluate the SCOUT.
