Communicating about system requirements with user stories is a distinctive feature of Agile Software Development methods. While user stories make system requirements intelligible to both customers and technical developers, they also create new challenges for the requirements elicitation process such as personal bias and requirements coverage. In this study we propose that when elicited from groups instead of individuals, the number of stories generated, the uniqueness and the comprehensiveness of the stories is likely to increase. A lab experiment design is delineated and partially completed. Future research will need to be conducted to determine conclusions.
