Starting of on sunday with a little impact mapping I tried to outline the first basic ideas using this technique. It turns it takes some rewrites and a little back and forth untilyou hit the spot.
Here is my first Impact Map for the project.
Simplyfy workshop preparation Sebs Avoid having to use single google spreadsheeds to calculate which are the most important practices for participants Avoid having to explain "what do I need to do in order to prepare" Participants Read about practices Get the links to the "original" Contents Website listing the basic descritption Get information about related Practices Links to "allies" Boss of Participants Get a list of practices selected by teams Mail or Website to look at Convince potential customers that the workshop is awesome Sebs Participants Potential participants Provide a general information hub for XP practices
What did I take away from that little session of 2 hours in a starbucks?
I have identified 4 groups of users
What can people do on the site?
I created 2 Userstories out of that which will provide my first features
As a workshop participant and website user I want to see a list of available practices so that I can get an overview about all the practices offered for the workshop
As a workshop participant and webiste user I want to read about specific practices so that I know what it is about and I can decide if I want to have it in the workshop
The main idea on interative and incremental development is to actually do stuff before you get into more planning. I have absolutely no incentive to do way more upfront planning. The basic idea remains to have a tool help participants fo workshops select the practices they want to hear about and thus I am gonna to add some feature files that I can feed into cucumber.js and start developing right away.
It is getting interesting. ;) So lets code a bit.
