What are Thin Vertical Slices? [Video]

Framing development efforts as thin vertical slices using user stories ensures a quickly releasable product, maximized value to the stakeholders, and a workflow that is adaptable to many kinds of change.

Framing work in thin vertical slices of functionality means focusing on the business need behind feature requests instead of stratifying efforts by layer of the application. When development of a particular ticket is complete, the user identified in the ticket or user story should be able to accomplish his or her goal as supported by any backend and frontend development needed.
