Menlo Innovations: Story Mapping Virtual Workshop

Thursday, October 07 2021 at 8:30am - 12:30pm

One of the most helpful prioritization and alignment tools we use here at Menlo is the Story Map. It might be at your organization, too – facilitating planning, prioritization and conversation amongst multiple stakeholders.

The Story Map is an important tool in our visual management toolkit to show the big picture plan for a project. As with all our visual management systems, the tool doesn’t solve potential project problems, it simply exposes them so the humans can anticipate and solve them. This four-hour virtual workshop includes hands-on activities to not just scope and build a story map but teach you to recognize potential issues and how to effectively interpret a story map. Build consensus, re-prioritize, and respond effectively to changes in project timelines and budget.
