Breaking features into stories

I find that breaking working into iteration-sized chunks is one of the areas where many teams struggle as they start with Scrum or other agile methods. It’s particularly hard for team who have been organized by component or layer (GUI, middleware, backend…).

Now Brian Marick has posted a nice example of how to break a feature down into stories on his site. This is the sort of concrete example that helps people translate the concept to their own context.
