Storystorming - A Debut Performance

Ten colors, six tools, one goal: Storystorming is a very lightweight approach for understanding your organisation's problems, designing suitable solutions and transparently planning their implementation. Storystorming seamlessly integrates impact mapping, event storming, domain storytelling, user story mapping, collaboration modelling and example mapping into one cohesive approach using ten colors of sticky notes. Using these six tools, rooted in agility, domain-driven design (DDD) and behavior driven development (BDD), Storystorming fosters an intensive collaboration between business and technology experts. Now they can connect the dots and discover what your organisation needs to remain successful.

    We are a family of four (two parents, two teenagers)
    and have to take care of shopping on a regular basis.
    Everybody should help a bit from time to time!
    Therefore we use a mobile ToDo App with a shared
    shopping list. All family members can add shopping
    items to this list, such as e.g. "1 loaf of bread". Items
    may be marked to be urgently needed on a certain
    date. The shopping list will then inform all family
    members about such an urgently needed item.
    Whoever has time or comes by a suitable shop just
    marks any bought item as Done in the shopping list.
    Please model a VERY SPECIFIC KEY EXAMPLE
    SCENARIO by means of Storystorming!

  36. Strengths and Weaknesses? :-)

    View full-size slide

  37. My take on some strengths of the approach
    - Record natural language (even without immediate full understanding)
    - Improve upon single terms and prepare your ubiquitous language (DDD)
    - Work close to some individual's human perspective, perfect for interviews
    - Focus on just one single example sequence of all possible activities
    - Clarify problems and exceptions - by adding assumptions or more stories
    - Discuss alternatives – just by taking a picture and rearranging stickies
