Practical Story Mapping - introductory level

A session at UX Cambridge 2015

Wednesday 9th September, 2015

1:30pm to 3:00pm (GMT)

Does your organisation have trouble keeping track of the big picture and the customer's actual problem during product development? This could manifest itself in your stakeholder over focusing on some product areas and not listening when you try to highlight gaps in the experience, or being they proponents of the "more is better" school of thoughts.

In this workshop you'll learn about User Story Mapping and how it can help. User Story Mapping is a collaborative practice that keeps the whole team focused on how and why customers use your product. Helping everybody deliver a great user experience together.

You'll create story maps with your fellow attendees. You'll see how they keep the whole team focussed on the customer's experience. You'll understand how they can be used to break down the customer journey into small chunks of work without losing sight of the big picture.

What you will take away from this workshop:
-Understand user story mapping and how to create story maps with your team
-How story maps help the whole team identify with the customer's journey
-How to use story maps as a tool for product discovery
-How story maps can bring product managers, researchers, designers, developers and testers together around a single artefact
-How story maps help you prioritise the customer experience over building more features
-The relationship between story maps and backlogs
-Designed for UX designers in product teams who work to a backlog and an agile methodology, this workshop is open to all, a basic knowledge of agile is recommended in order to benefit from the full value.
