Online User Story Mapping Workshop

Confused about where to begin with user story mapping? Learn how to apply this powerful technique to your own product with our half-day online workshop for just $499

We can help you get started

User story mapping is a brilliant tool for product discovery that brings your whole team together under one shared vision. It makes working with user stories much easier by helping you visualise your entire product from the perspective of your users. However, it can be hard to know where to start if you’ve never mapped your product’s user journeys before.

Let's explore your product together

With our online workshop, we help you explore your product and its user journeys. We’ll take you through the fundamental concepts of user story mapping and then work with you to apply this to your own product. We’ll also discuss how user story mapping fits into your team’s workflow and you’ll walk away with a story map of your own product that will help you plan and build its features more effectively.

Workshop breakdown

Initial consultation (30 mins)

In this session, we like to cover off introductions and get to know you a little. We want to understand your product and its vision, what your role is and what your main objectives are so we can tailor the workshop to your specific needs. We also like to understand your current product development workflow to get a better sense of the problems you’re facing and how exactly user story mapping can support your team’s delivery processes. Finally, we’ll agree on some key outcomes for the user story mapping workshop to follow.

User story mapping workshop (3 ½ hrs)

The main workshop is made up of three sections. The amount of time spent on each section can, of course, be moulded around your needs and current working knowledge of user story mapping. The following breakdown of each section will give you a good overview of the workshop:

The theory of user story mapping

We’ll run through the fundamental concepts of user story mapping. This will involve delving into the differences between traditional product backlogs and user story maps, followed by a deep dive into the anatomy of a story map. We will analyse examples of good maps and not-so-good maps, to illustrate the importance of implementing your maps correctly.

Building a user story map together

The core section of the workshop will involve us working as a team to build out a user story map for your product or service. This process will include defining foundational user journeys, translating feature ideas from you and your stakeholders into user stories and prioritising sets of user stories into “slices”, giving you a lean collection of releases to move forward and build.

Discovering how user story mapping fits into your workflow

Every team has a different development workflow and we want to help you decide where user story mapping works best for you. We'll discuss your current workflow and suggest where you can slot user story mapping in to gain the most benefit from it. We will also incorporate the use of integrations that can help you send data in and out of the tools you already use.
