What Is a User Story Mapping Tool?

A user story map is a visual representation of the process a user goes through when interacting with a product or service. Create a better user experience by identifying and defining changes needed to improve.

How to Create a User Story Map?

  • Gather a cross-functional team of employees who are directly involved in the process of developing and building the product.
  • Define the users of your product clearly by identifying their problems, goals etc. Make use of user personas to synthesize the information you gather.
  • Identify the user’s problem from the information you have gathered. Then specify how exactly your product can help solve it.
  • Single out the set of activities your users complete as they use your product. These will be the stories or themes placed across the top of your user story map.
  • Using the Creately real-time collaboration feature, get your team to work on breaking down these activities into smaller user stories.
  • Use different colors for each activity. This will also help when you are prioritizing stories. Place them vertically with the most important ones at the top.
  • Outline how the users follow through the product from left to right on your user story map. If there are multiple users, create different scenarios for each.
  • Prioritize the stories important for creating a better user experience. Then identify dependencies, technical requirements, bottlenecks that may slow down the functionality/process.
  • Have solutions in place to overcome these issues before you plan your work to deliver a quality product in the shortest time possible.
