User Storys + Executive Summary

12. Nov. 2022

I used this rainy day to write the two worksheets on user stories and the executive summary. At first I confused the Executive Summary with a Project Summary. However, after more research, I discovered that the two documents are not the same and there are important distinctions. Although both documents are summaries, the Project Summary deals with detailed information such as roles, milestones, budget, etc. and is used more as a project tool. It provides the project stakeholders an accurate overview of the current status of a project. On the other hand, an Executive Summary deals with the four most important points of a project assignment: Problem Statement, Goal and Vision, Value and Benefits and Conclusion. Furthermore, the document is written at the beginning of the project and should primarily serve all project stakeholders as a quick overview of the upcoming project.
