Story Mapping Deep Dive

an immersive story mapping workshop with Kevin Callahan

About this course

Product development is fraught with risks. Risk of delay. Risk of missing what is needed. Risk of poor understanding. Risk of miscommunication. Risk of rework. These risks can consume time, money, and our creative and innovative capabilities with little to show for it.

What if there was a way to not simply address these risks, though reduce or avoid them altogether? User Story Mapping is a proven approach that puts the odds in our favor. To gain these benefits though requires understanding fundamental principles of product development.

Kevin Callahan’s Story Mapping Deep Dive covers not only fundamentals, but how effective product definition work also sets up effective story mapping sessions.

Participants will learn product development by doing it!

Participants will gain first-hand experience in product definition and discovery practices, learn about common product development pitfalls, and get a sense of product development as a discipline and profession beyond simply a role.
