Agile Working Group
Plan in Multiple Dimensions with Story Maps

Prioritized lists are linear and limit our ability to focus on the different users of our systems. Story maps add another dimension to your planning that provides context for each type of user. You will learn the difference between incremental and iterative product delivery. We'll also show how to leverage personas when creating a story map. Finally, we will review techniques to facilitate a story mapping session which you can use with your team.
