Story Maps tackle the challenge of building that first backlog of user stories. Learn how to unlock the potential of this powerful and comprehensive tool. Story maps challenge our traditional methods of breaking work down by focusing on a defined user’s (persona) interaction rather than the mechanics of building software. The result is vastly improved software that is focused on usability and flow.
Participants will learn:
  • Three ways to rapidly capture any new problem in a Story Map 
  • Five significant benefits of building a Story Map 
  • The one essential trick for getting started, 
  • a Journey Map 
The items learned together will provide you with a significant understanding of how to rapidly write dozens of user stories without losing the big picture. Attendees start by building a simple journey map. This captures the narrative of activity from a defined persona point of view. Then working in groups, participants will build their own versions of Story Maps and leave with the tools necessary to implement Story Mapping with their teams.
