Have you ever wondered how to maximize your impact as a software engineer? Countless software products and projects fade away without making any impact due to wrong assumptions, lack of focus, poor communication of objectives or misalignment with overall business goals.
If you pick up the right habits, techniques, and mindsets when you’re starting off, then you’re significantly more likely to succeed. And here we are to help!
Join us for Impact Mapping Training to learn about how to build products and deliver projects that make an impact, not just ship software.
Impact mapping is a strategic planning technique that prevents organizations from getting lost while building products and delivering projects, by clearly communicating assumptions, helping teams align their activities with overall business objectives and make better roadmap decisions. Moreover, it fits nicely into current trends in software product management and release planning like agile and lean software methods and design thinking.
