User Story Mapping for Beginners.

Colin Mackay Profile Picture Colin Mackay
Sometimes it is difficult to work out how to prioritise the backlog and effectively work iteratively while still holding on to the big picture. What do you put in your MVP (Minimal Viable Product)? What then goes in each incremental release to give your users more and more useful functionality? Storymapping is a technique for solving this problem and getting your solution to your users faster.

In this interactive session I’ll explain how you go about creating a story map and I’ll get you to create one. Lots of sticky notes later you should have a fairly good grasp and be able to use the same technique on your own projects to better manage your backlog and keep everyone aware of the big picture while still working on individual stories.

Sticky notes and sharpies will be supplied.
