Impact Mapping - How to Make Value-Driven Prioritization a Reality (Mathias Eifert)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!


Abstract:
Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a way to combine quantified business goals, direct traceability from goals to features, surfacing of value assumptions, cause-and-effect analysis, design thinking and visual facilitation in a single approach?
There is! Impact Maps support multiple stakeholders in gaining consensus on which features or actions are most useful to help us achieve an organizational goal. In the process, we agree what needs to be accomplished, create shared understanding of possible solutions, decide which user groups or personas to target first, derive epics/user stories, identify the underlying assumptions that need to be validated using testable hypotheses, and determine leading indicators to get early feedback whether we are moving in the right direction.
In this workshop, we will look at how Impact Maps can help ensure business value, how to build one with a group of stakeholders, and how to get the most out of it. Best of all, you will create your own sample map so you will walk away with hands-on experience!

Learning Outcomes:
  • - Understand how Impact Maps can help with ensuring that Agile projects actually create value.
  • - Get an overview of how to construct an Impact Map with your stakeholders in a structured brainstorming session.
  • - Interpret the map to derive epics/user stories, metrics and testable hypotheses.
  • - Reflect on the presented concepts by building a sample map together with the other attendees
