About this event

User Story Mapping Workshop

This event will demonstrate the basics of User Story Mapping, as first described by Jeff Patton in his book, User Story Mapping.  

Why should you want to know how to User Story Mapping? 

User Story Mapping helps you figure out what you or your team need to develop now, in your first Sprint, for your first Release, and for later Sprints and Releases so that you are always delivering something useful/usable with each increment. 

User Story Mapping is used to help teams decompose outcomes that users want, such as creating a blog site, into small steps that can be worked in increments. Each increment should then provide something that can be reviewed by users for feedback, which will then cause the User Story Mapping to be updated to adapt for the feedback, ensuring you deliver what the user wants.
