Impact Mapping Remote Workshop

Learn how to get the most out of user stories

Abstract

Have you struggled to split user stories into small but valuable chunks? Do you have problems prioritising stories or getting a commitment from business stakeholders on what they want to achieve?

Do you have issues deciding when a story is done or how many other stories you really need to achieve a business objective? Are you managing large amounts of stories that are problematic to estimate, prioritise or plan for?

If so, join this interactive remote Product Owner Key Skills Workshop with Gojko Adzic and bring your product owners and business sponsors to learn how to get the most out of user stories.

Target audience

This is a workshop for senior software delivery people as well as business sponsors working with software teams primarily in an agile or lean environment.

In order to attend the workshop, you should already have a basic knowledge of iterative delivery methods and at least some experience of working in a Scrum, XP or Kanban-like delivery.

To get the most out of this workshop, you should have a relatively senior role, from a technical or business perspective.

Product Owner Key Skills with Gojko Adzic is particularly fit for:

  • Business sponsors will learn how to ensure their organisation benefits more from agile team delivery capability, and how to steer product management and delivery better to achieve strategic goals faster.
  • Analysts and Product owners will learn how to link between business sponsors and teams more effectively, how to select and prioritise stories and features to achieve better impacts
  • Developers and testers will learn how to engage with business stakeholders and product owners to get better direction and focus delivery on things that really matter.

Learning Objectives

This is a remote workshop based on Gojko Adzic’s books Fifty Quick Ideas To Improve Your User Stories, Impact Mapping and years of experience helping teams deliver better software.

Join Gojko to learn:

  • several effective ways that industry-leading teams apply to make their user stories much more effective,
  • how to ensure that things coming into your workstream are defined well, split to be small enough but valuable, and
  • how to achieve the big benefits of adaptive planning and that you can expect from great user stories.
