Product Vision to Story Maps – the A to Z’s of Product Management

  • Project Management
  • Course Code: 96034

Use Story Maps to Deliver What Your Customers Want and Need -- with the Greatest Impact and Value.

Story mapping is a powerful, collaborative planning technique to help you gain alignment on what is most important for your customer while empowering your team to create a plan which they own. Without this, you risk reliving that famous cartoon contrasting “What the customer wanted vs. what the team delivered”!  This one-day course focuses on a single business opportunity. You will refine the product vision, define the themes which are important to the customer, learn to prioritize those themes, and then decompose them into epics and user stories. These will be used to build a story map that will support subsequent delivery efforts. Story maps combine the best of a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) and a Release Plan.

Do you need a different date or location? We offer Courses On Request.
