Example Mapping: The New Three Amigos

Example Mapping is a collaboration technique used by teams to help refine requirements. Every team should have a set of “ready” criteria that includes a workshop between team members to establish a shared understanding between the business and development team. In a time-boxed Example Mapping session, rules will summarize examples or constraints about a user story, and questions about outcomes or dependencies are documented for future refinement. The end result are user behaviors that become the tests to validate the original requirements. The audience will participate in a live Example Mapping session and learn how to implement the workshop within their own team.

Session Takeaways:

  • Audience will learn how to implement Example Mapping in their workplace.
  • Example Mapping creates a shared understanding of requirements among all roles on the team.
  • Example Mapping promotes tests written as user behavior.
  • Large or unclear stories are stopped from entering active development.
