One-line description: game-changing technique for product/roadmap/scope management

Session format: Workshop (150 mins) [read about the different session types]

Abstract:Effect Mapping is a game-changing technique for strategic analysis, project roadmap and high level scope visualization, particularly effective for software projects delivered iteratively. I've used it recently to re-plan a project to deliver in 20% of original planned time. In this session, I'll explain the key aspects of effect mapping and teach you how to facilitate effect mapping workshops.

Effect maps provide an excellent level of visibility to stakeholders and help drive software projects towards delivering the right product with a high level of quality. The maps also facilitate the application of several techniques of agile planning, product design, prioritisation and scoping. In practice, I’ve found the combination of these techniques by far the most powerful way of iterative product management.
