User Story Mapping

User Story Mapping is a pretty simple idea, but with a huge impact on the effectiveness of product backlogs, team meetings, and release planning. Based on a user journey through a product or on the basis of a larger business process, the big picture of many requirements can be clearly presented and understood. This way we can prioritize in a much more meaningful way.

What to expect

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 User Story 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 the backbone of our map with colored sticky notes aligned with the Storystorming toolbox. This way we’ll be able to identify groups of users or interacting subsystems affected by the details mapped to our stories.

Building Blocks and Colors

As mentioned, 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!
