Impact Mapping

It’s pretty easy“to get bogged down in creative processes or even completely lost. But our products and projects do not exist in a vacuum: we are surrounded by people, other projects, our organization and a larger society. Impact Mapping guides us through a dynamic process of iterative decision-making, placing different deliverables in the context of their perceived impact on key stakeholders.

  • 0.5 days in-house or flexible 3.5 hours remote
  • Teamwork and varied hands-on sessions
  • Extensive PDF handout for your reference
  • Up to 12 participants
  • Prerequisites: none

We reach out to bring newbies of collaborative business and software modeling and design methods together with creators, practitioners and thought leaders.

What to expect

Impact maps help us to ultimately achieve the expected and hoped-for business results by constantly responding to changes on the move, „grounding“ our plans, adapting them to reality. In this hands-on workshop, we will work as a team to analyze either an example domain or your own domain. By doing this we will learn and explore the Impact Mapping workshop method, invest a bit time in its original background and discuss goals and different situational use cases for the method. We will also learn about a variant to represent such a map with colored sticky notes.

Building Blocks and Colors

The building blocks we’ll use are aligned with the Storystorming toolbox. By visually mapping several known methods such as Domain Storytelling, User Story Mapping and Impact Mapping to a small set of reusable building blocks and colors inspired by Event Storming, all these methods become more accessible to busy organizations, and can also easily be linked with each other.

Is this for me?

Are you confronted with analyzing or designing customer journeys, workflows or business processes, with or without a relation to business software development? Are you a domain or business expert in your company required to collaborate with software people? Are you a product owner, a business analyst, a software architect or a lead/senior software developer? Are you looking for lightweight methods to succeed with process or software design workshops?

If one of these questions applies, this workshop is for you!
