The Principle of Slices Instead of Layers

An application built via User Stories is like a cake made in slices instead of layers. — Barry Hawkins

The inspiration and genesis of this observation comes from Mike Cohn‘s book User Stories Applied: For Agile Software Development; see chapter 7, page 75 for the section “Slice the Cake” discussing how to break down a large user story.
