Description:

Understanding your customer's experience is the first step in creating solutions that provide value. The use of systematic, visual representations can expose previously unseen opportunities for growth. Called experience maps (among other related terms), these diagrams provides valuable business insight.

However, many people associate mapping experience with heavy upfront research. This need not be the case at all. In fact, diagrams can be co-created by team members in a matter of days.

Once complete, experience maps provide a big picture that you can align subsequent activities to, including user story mapping, design sprints, content planning, and more.

In this webcast you will learn:

  • The value of experience mapping and how you get results quick.
  • The key factors of a solid mapping effort, which still apply even in rapid creation situations.
