From User Storymapping to High-Level Release Plan by Basia Coulter

This was a lightning talk presented on June 22, 2017 as part of the kick-off to the “Tools n Techniques” series. The event had six talks from local UX practitioners on their favorite UX tool or technique used to streamline their process, communicate more effectively, and help understand our users better. For more details on the event, check out the recap: https://medium.com/exploreux/recap-tools-n-techniques-kick-off-cc6f6ce03ca9

Basia Coulter from Caktus Group presented a talk on user storymapping based on the book User Story Mapping by Jeff Patton.

Each month, we'll be hosting Tools n Technique evenings based around focused and broad themes (e.g., the Sketch app, user research, etc.) If you're in the Triangle (Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, North Carolina) area, come join us (http://www.meetup.com/exploreUX-raleigh)! We're also looking for people to present and share their favorite UX tool or technique.

If you can't join us in person, join us online. We'll be posting event recaps as well as additional articles on tools and techniques on our Medium publication (http://www.medium.com/exploreux). We’d love to hear your thoughts and let us know if you’d like to contribute an article on your favorite tool or technique!
