About this class
Did you realize how difficult is to visualize the product as a whole when working with a typical Flat Product Backlog?
A solution is User Story Mapping. A user story map is a simple idea, is about arranging user stories into a helpful shape. User Story mapping is used by top companies of any industry to visualize goals with activities and agree fast on how to achieve them with minimum versions of the product.
This workshop will guide you step by step with a realistic example that you can also follow with your own project.
If you have no knowledge about User stories, don't worry, we will start by writing user stories, apply formats for acceptance criteria, understand the different sizes of user stories, and split the stories to the right size using proven techniques and approaches. You will see many examples of how to apply these techniques.

Hi, my name is Ignacio.
I led, coached, led, and managed Agile projects and scrum teams since 2005 for customers all over the world.
During my career of intensive learning, I got many scrum certifications including Certified Scrum Professional Scrum Master, Professional Product Owner, and Certified Agile Leadership which are very difficult to achieve.
I worked 15 years as a Professor for Agile Methodologies and Systems design.
I love to teach Agile and Scrum and I designed a lot of hours of training that I am bringing online. I prefer to teach with games and activities that can simulate the real world.
I trained hundreds of students in Agile that became top professionals in the industry.
Teaching what I learned in my 20 years of experience allows the students to gain realistic learning that they can apply at work.
