Impact mapping is a strategic, collaborative planning technique that, through visualization, surfaces the hidden assumptions, interpretations and intentions that often derail a product development effort. By focusing first on required business outcomes and then drilling down to deliverables, impact maps provide a focus for informed discussion and decision-making about which products/projects/features to prioritize. Impact maps facilitate collaboration between senior decision-makers in the business, customers and technical developers; support definition of fitness-for-purpose through identifying required changes in actors’ behavior, together with the metrics to measure them; help manage road-maps by focusing on business outcomes rather than pre-set scope limits. In this course you learn how to create, as well as use, impact maps.

You Will Learn How To:

  • Distinguish between outcomes and outputs
  • Discover real, not assumed, business goals
  • Identify actor types and the changed behaviors that are needed to meet the goal
  • Relate user stories to impact maps in an Agile development environment
  • Define and use appropriate measurements
  • Draw effective impact maps
  • Use your impact map to identify key priorities

I was quite impressed with the Learning Tree instructors and how knowledgeable they were. They’re out there every day doing what they teach. Nothing is better than experience. One instructor had 35 years in the business and was a walking wealth of information.
