User Story Map

User Story Mapping, invented by Jeff Patton, helps to keep the big picture tangible while working in small batch sizes and short iterations. At the same time, it helps to achieve a common understanding of the product to de developed  in teams. The User Story Map is the perfect glue between stakeholders, product managers and development teams. The User Story Map replaces or complements the product backlog.

What is User Story Mapping?

A User Story Map orders the User stories for a product as follows:

  • The top row builds the backbone of the user stories. It tells the story of a user working with our product.
  • Below each story of the backbone, the details of that functionality are reveled as more fine-grained stories.
  • Left to right it delivers an overview of functionalities offered.
  • The columns contain the details of the offered functionality.

At each point in time, the User Story Map visualizes the big picture of the product to be developed by the team. The User Story Map directly supports hands on decision making and planning of releases, MVPs, scoping and more

Throughout the training a practical real life example will be used for each exercise.

What will I learn in the training?

  • Writing and slicing User Stories
