Impact Mapping

It can be easy to get swept up in discussions centered around making sure that the work being done by development teams is in sync with what the stakeholders have identified as being of the highest priority to them. While this is definitely an important factor to consider, it is also critical to make sure that we have identified and prioritized the issues and problems we need to solve to achieve the organization’s strategic goals. Impact Mapping is a tool that can be used to create a conversation between stakeholders and teams to understanding which problems need to be addressed first to ensure we are having the greatest possible impact on delivering different outcomes for our customers and for the business.

In this episode of SoundNotes, LeadingAgile Managing Consultant, Will Evans spends time with Dave Prior discussing Impact Mapping.

During the podcast you will learn:

  • What Impact Mapping Is
  • Why it works
  • How it can help your organization make informed decisions about which problems to solve first in order to reach your strategic goals
  • How you can get started using Impact Mapping within your organization
