About this class

Did you realize how difficult is to visualize the product as a whole when working with a typical Flat Product Backlog?

A solution is User Story Mapping. A user story map is a simple idea, is about arranging user stories into a helpful shape. User Story mapping is used by top companies of any industry to visualize goals with activities and agree fast on how to achieve them with minimum versions of the product.

This workshop will guide you step by step with a realistic example that you can also follow with your own project.

If you have no knowledge about User stories, don't worry, we will start by writing user stories, apply formats for acceptance criteria, understand the different sizes of user stories, and split the stories to the right size using proven techniques and approaches. You will see many examples of how to apply these techniques.

The course contents were very helpful and the duration was ideal. The technical delivery and communication can be improved (assignment submission procedures in particular). Overall I am very satisfied with the course, it enabled me to deliver impact at work. I would highly recommend this course to anyone interested in the course syllabus.

I really emjoyed the User Story mapping workshop component. Creating the USM was fun, even though I did it on my own. I am sure working on this as a team would be great fun.

The content sums up the important concepts and using the tools gives the direction for creating user mappings. Good resources given by the instructor and great presentation. Highly recommended for people starting the Product Owner journey as well as for people in the role looking for a refresher.

Great course and techniques. I am an experienced BA, but I am always looking to learn new techniques. Thanks for a great course.

I am a beginner so appreciate that this is an intermediate course. I struggled with the last two assignments based on lack of experience and also the lack of interaction that there is with anyone else on the course. I have learnt about myself more than this it isn't a true reflection on the instructor but think that the speed of delivery could be a bit slower to help give more clarity. Also when asking to collaborate with others need to consider how this could be facilitated.

For a person with less experience in user stories this is an ideal course. Personally i enjoy this course.
