Story mapping is a better way to work with Agile user stories
User Story Mapping is a dead simple idea. Talk about the user’s journey through your product by building a simple model that tells your user’s story as you do. It turns out this simple idea makes working with user stories in agile development a lot easier.
More importantly it’ll keep your users and what they’re doing with your product front and center in your products. That’s better than getting lost in feature arguments – like what normally happens in software development. I’m not making any promises here, but if you use Story Mapping, I believe your products will ultimately be better.
From this page you can get to a number of resources on and off this site that’ll help you with story mapping.
