As a product owner, I want to split a large story into several smaller stories so that the stories can fit better into the iterations

Hi Craig

Thanks for the feedback.

In order to see if we can help you, can you explain at what point you split stories.  And when you split stories, what happens to the story you have split, is it disregarded?  I have spoken with a few users who have this need, and they say the normally add a new story and simply reduce the scope of the existing epic.  Does this not work for you?  If not, please explain your process and let me see what we can do.

Some of our initial  stories in the backlog are 40+.  We generally break them down to <20.  Would like to leave the original story in the PB, and then split into smaller stories as necessary.
