Example Mapping: Collaborative Requirements Discovery

Is your team struggling with unproductive requirements gathering meetings and workshops? Are you unsatisfied with how your Scrum team comes together to refine requirements and specify solutions? Have you heard about example mapping and want to know more?

Specifying and delivering software is a process of discovery. No team has ever delivered a valuable product without discovering many things during the software development process, but many teams struggle to get good at discovery. Matt Wynne created a technique called example mapping that has helped thousands of teams around the world use examples to reach a shared understanding of the problems that need solved. As a consequence, there are fewer misunderstandings, fewer disagreements, and a smoother flow of value delivery.

This presentation explains what example mapping is and why it works for gathering Agile requirements. Through a series of practical demonstrations, you will explore the essential actions needed to prepare for, facilitate, and derive value from example mapping. This knowledge will then make it simple for you and your Agile teams to adopt example mapping successfully (using the many excellent online teaching resources available) and adapt it to your specific context.
