How do you build a product that delights users? You must first know who your users are and how they plan to use what you’re building. With this practical book, you'll explore the often-misunderstood practice of user story mapping, and learn how it can help keep your team stay focused on users and their experience throughout the development process.

You and your team will learn that user stories aren’t a way to write better specifications, but a way to organize and have better conversations. This book will help you understand what kinds of conversations you should be having, when to have them, and what to keep track of when you do.

  • Learn the key concepts used to create a great story map
  • Understand how user stories really work, and how to make good use of them in agile and lean projects
  • Examine the nuts and bolts of managing stories through the development cycle
  • Use strategies that help you continue to learn before and after the product’s release to customers and users

User Story Mapping is ideal for agile and lean software development team members, product managers and UX practitioners in commercial product companies, and business analysts and project managers in IT organizations—whether you’re new to this approach or want to understand more about it.

    Comments about oreilly User Story Mapping:

    I have found good ideas which are valuable not only for agile methodologies but for requirements collection and software development in general. We do not use user stories on every project, but this book is still very useful for me, because it puts many things in my head on the right place.

      This is a great book, even though its an early draft. It's written really well, almost like you're sitting beside Jeff as he talks you through the material. On top of that, it's also very engaging and entertaining.
