Story Mapping Product Experience

A story map is a simple way to visualize a product idea from a user experience perspective. Mapping your product's story uses the same approach script writers use to think through a movie or TV story idea. It's fast, collaborative, and telling your product's story helps you spot the holes in your thinking. Once created, a map lets you think through options and alternative ideas that'll make your product better. It's easy to slice out what you think is a smallest viable product, and to identify the next experiment that'll help you validate your product concept.

In this three hour workshop, you'll learn story mapping by building a simple map collaboratively with others. You'll learn how to use story maps to make sense of how users and customers do things today, and how they might do things better with your product. You'll learn how to use story maps to drive Lean Startup style experimentation, as well as heads-down Agile software development. For UX practitioners specifically, we'll talk about your role as designer and facilitator to help your organization engage in effective product design.

Workshop flow:
  • After a brief introduction, you'll spend the first hour learning the basics in a hands-on story mapping exercise collaborating with others in the class
  • We'll sum up what we've learned, then take a 15 minute coffee break. You'll need it.
  • During the second hour, you'll work hands-on with a story map for a mobile product. You'll use that map to identify minimum viable product releases, experiments, and safe development strategies
  • In the remaining time we'll discuss how story mapping fits into a holistic product design and development process
