Impact mapping is a strategic planning technique which complies with agile, lean startup and design thinking principles. It perfectly works for planning software products and projects and it can also work well for non-IT business. In this tutorial, participants have a chance to learn the impact mapping technic in practice by preparing their impact maps in small groups.
During the workshop participants are split into groups of 4 to 5 people. They choose the problem they will work on (from a list of IT and non-IT problems) and they prepare an impact map step by step. They start with shaping the goal, then they define actors, desired impacts and deliverables. And the end they try to find the shortest path through the map.
70% of the time is dedicated to hands-on work in groups and 30% of the time is spent on theory presentation.
