It's your turn!
you will create your first user story map.
You will take the output from your team’s recent user story mapping workshop in this Google Spreadsheet.
You will create a graphical representation of this information in a user story map format (using post-it notes and paper) and take a photo of the physical story map you have just created.
The Story Map Format
Note that a user story map needs to show:
A set of activities in chronological order from left to right
A set of tasks underneath the appropriate activity
A set of user stories, each appearing under the relevant task.
A set of swim lanes, one for each release. The appropriate user stories for each release should appear in the swim lane for that release.
How to Create a Story Map
You have a variety of options for creating this physical story map
Use a set of post-it notes of different colors. If you have 3 different colors of post it notes then you can use one color for the activities, another color for tasks and another color for user stories. Put the post-it notes on a white sheet of paper and draw lines to represent each swim lane on the paper. Then you can place the post-it notes in the appropriate swim lane.
Draw everything on a sheet of paper, drawing boxes with your pen instead of using post-it notes
Check your work!
