Are you a business analyst working in an Agile environment? Ever feel like you’re missing the big picture, focusing on iterations of details? Agile teams can often get caught up in a single product feature, iterating on that one feature to its most complete state. While this approach gives the user fully-fleshed functionality in one area, often the larger workflow is forgotten. We know that a complete and meaningful user experience is important for product success, but prioritizing requirements across the entire user workflow can be challenging. Using the concepts from Jeff Patton's story mapping exercise, this presentation will show how you can use a layered design approach to create the most valuable end-to-end user experience. Applied at this level, story mapping helps to identify the basic set of requirements for the workflow, and illustrates options for layering enhancements and embellishments. This technique builds on traditional use cases and workflows and adds a visual map to create a complete user experience with the right level of functionality. Participants will hear examples of how this method has been applied at ProQuest, LLC and learn how to use this simple, effective method to start designing the end-to-end user experience in an Agile way. They will also take away tips for thinking agilely when designing their next project, and they will take away cupcakes.
