Remember when people thought the world was flat? That same type of thinking may be shaping your product backlog into a monolithic list that is difficult to understand. In this hands-on workshop you will learn a new tool, User Story Mapping, which focuses on customer discovery to help you gain insights and produce a multi-dimensional view of your product development needs. A user story map arranges user stories into a useful model to help understand what you want to deliver, identify holes and omissions in your backlog, and effectively plan holistic releases that deliver real value to users.
