Are you ready for a deep dive into the creative process for building a story map and using agile estimating techniques to build your release plans and schedule? This interactive, hands-on workshop will guide you through the low-tech, but
structured, process to move from an idea to a fully developed story board that tells a story and communicates scope, priorities, high-level estimate of work and flushes out risks and dependencies. This workshop will provide you with the tools and best practices for creating and maintaining an adjustable iterative planning structure and reporting process. This structure can be used as a stand-alone visual or as a planning mechanism for input to electronic systems such as JIRA or VersionOne. Included is Jeff Patton’s book “User Story Mapping: Discover the Whole Story, Build the Right Product” as part of the course reference materials.
