In this blog post, Dhaval Panchal proposes a technique that help slicing agile user stories. He uses it for stories ‘not-done’ at the end of sprint or team that have problems to split stories horizontally across components. The idea is linked to the experience of taking your dog to a park for a walk. The team will walk each end user functionality through the architectural component park. During this walk you estimate each user stories to see if it is feasible to develop them in one sprint, you can detect project risks or impediments and you promote shared understanding.
