Agile Lean April 23rd P2P – Learn Story Mapping through Exercises

What? Learn Story Mapping through exercises

Story Mapping is a tool to help us see the big picture from a user’s point of view. User Stories freed the Agile community from heavy weight requirements documents, but in the process sometimes we lose sight of the big picture. Story Mapping is a tool that helps see the bigger picture of our products from the point of view of the end user.

Story Mapping provides another view of the product backlog and can potentially replace it.

In this session participants will collaborate to build the backlog for the “Worlds Smallest Online Bookstore”: “ caters to the view that Amazon is wrong, an infinite supply of books is too much. Readers don’t want an infinite supply just right choice for their next book. They don’t want to spend hours agonizing, instead they want to spend that time reading.”

When? Tuesday April 23rd, 2013 from 4:30p.m. to 6:00p.m.

Where? Communitech Hub, 151 Charles Street West, Atlas & Matrix Rooms, Kitchener, ON
