September 2016 Meeting - Colin Mackay

Published on 06 September 2016

Aberdeen Developers are pleased to present a talk by Colin Mackay, on Thursday 15th September 2016 at the Robert Gordon University.

Storymapping for Beginners

Sometimes it is difficult to work out how to prioritise the backlog and effectively work iteratively while still holding on to the big picture. What do you put in your MVP (Minimal Viable Product)? What then goes in each incremental release to give your users more and more useful functionality? Storymapping is a technique for solving this problem and getting your solution to your users faster.

In this highly interactive session I'll explain how you go about creating a story map and I'll get you to create one. Lots of sticky notes later you should have a fairly good grasp and be able to use the same technique on your own projects to better manage your backlog and keep everyone aware of the big picture while still working on individual stories.
