Descriptions du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Software is everywhere today, but countless software products and projects die a slow death without ever making any impact. The result is a tremendous amount of time and money wasted due to wrong assumptions, lack of focus, poor communication of objectives, lack of understanding and misalignment with overall goals. There has to be a better way to deliver!

This handbook is a practical guide to impact mapping, a simple yet incredibly effective method for collaborative strategic planning that helps organisations make an impact with software. Impact mapping helps to create better plans and roadmaps that ensure alignment of business and delivery, and are easily adaptable to change. Impact mapping fits nicely into several current trends in software product management and release planning, including goal-oriented requirements engineering, frequent iterative delivery, agile and lean software methods, lean startup product development cycles, and design thinking.

Who is this book for?

The primary audience of this book are senior people involved in building software products or delivering software projects, from both business and delivery sides. This includes business sponsors and those whose responsibilities include product ownership, project oversight or portfolio management, architecture, business analysis, quality improvement and assurance and delivery.

- Business people assigned to software projects will learn how to communicate their ideas better.
- Senior product or project sponsors will learn how to communicate their assumptions more effectively to delivery teams, how to engage delivery teams to make better strategic decisions, and how to manage their project portfolio more effectively.
- Delivery teams that are already working under the umbrella of agile or lean delivery methods, and more recently lean startup ideas, will learn how to better focus deliverables and engage business sponsors and users.
- Delivery teams moving to agile or lean delivery methods will get ideas on how to address some common issues with scaling these practices, such as creating a big picture view, splitting work into small chunks that still have business value and reporting progress more meaningfully.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A conversation with a really smart guy :-)! 17 décembre 2012
Par Linda Rising - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Here's what I like about this book.

Gojko is one smart guy, but he freely admits that he is standing on the shoulders
of giants, that the idea of impact mapping is only his take on good ideas that others
have had. He gives credit not only to other innovators but to those who have
helped to improve his idea along the way.

He is treating this technique in an agile way. He admits that it is not fully formed, so he
is putting out his best effort (which I think is pretty good!) and inviting you to
participate. He has created a forum for feedback and invites all comers.

This approach is not only used for the publishing and communicating *OF* the
method, it is used *FOR* the method itself!

I always look at the references when I read a book. I was so happy to see Tom Gilb
and Gary Klein cited. Both of these authors have had major impact on the way
we work and the way we think about work. Two thumbs up!

Gojko continally starts with the work of other innovators. Every section begins with
a summary of what a major contributor has to say about a topic. These words of
wisdom are little handles that allow us to hang on while he applies this received
knowledge to his method. It gives the reader confidence that each step is there
because Gojko has done his homework!

I love this little book. You can read it in a short time, start using it, and start
helping others to use it and together we can all learn and make things better!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Essential guidance in a useful, useable format on a technique that encourages product partners to build the right product 15 décembre 2012
Par Ellen Gottesdiener - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Impact Mapping provides essential guidance on using an efficient and effective technique that encourages product partners to build the right products--ones that have impact. Impact mapping, the subject of Gojko's lithe, approachable book, is an adaption of visual mapping technique (effect mapping).

Impact maps serve to align teams to business objectives, test mutual understanding of goals and expected outcomes, focus teams toward the highest value features to deliver, and enable collaborative decision-making. As such, impact maps--succinctly and approachably described in Gojko's book--is a key tool for collaborative strategic planning.

This is a book you can reference with ease as you plan and facilitate workshops (collaborative meetings with clear purpose and outcomes) for example: release or iteration planning, product roadmapping, process improvement, product and team chartering. And don't forget: it's not just for software products. You will find impact mapping and Gojko's book, useful for strategic alignment needed for any product--software, systems, or services.

Gojko's book is useful, useable and desirable--all the characteristics we want in a great resource! It is useful for building a shared understanding of the big "why's" for our work that is visual, fast to use, and encourages product partners to collaborate. It is useable--easy to read, including engaging cartoons and color, examples, references, and tips. It's desirable to build product that provide impact--aligns to goals and objectives and provide evidence of their value.

Try impact mapping and use Gojko's marvelous book, Impact Mapping: Making a Big Impact with Software Products and Projects to guide you to do your best, most impactful work.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This is a brilliant tool, clearly described, that you can put to use immediately 3 janvier 2014
Par Paul Klipp - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I started using impact mapping with the Kanbanery team almost two years ago, based on a blog post I'd read, and found it immediately helpful in identifying the connections between the work we were doing and the outcomes we expected. The approach addresses many of the problems I've seen with agile web development, which include chasing vanity metrics, adding unnecessary clutter (features that don't achieve their desired results but stay in anyway), and whim-driven design.

In this short book, Gojko describes the tool, why it works, how to use it, how not to use it, and then he kindly walks you through the entire agenda for an impact mapping meeting, explaining how to conduct the meeting and what to expect from each step.

There's no fluff here, just clear instructions on how to use this powerful tool for getting the best results from your product development effort.

I highly recommend it.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Too much tactic and not enough strategy 24 août 2014
Par Stanley Tan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
What I didn't like:
1. The 1st quarter of the book contains too much about the benefits of impact mapping without providing much context. e.g: Impact mapping solves the problem of X in the lean startup methodology.
It provides the "what" but doesn't provide much details on how and why it is better.
2. The book could be structured much better in a way the reader can absorb and implement Gojko ideas without understanding the whole concept. e.g: showing the readers the end result of what they can do after reading the book instead of filling it up with how good impact mapping is.
To be honest, readers don't care how great it is if it doesn't help them.
3. Not enough image and validity on how other companies are using Impact Mapping / case studies.
4. Too much tactic not enough strategy. The book doesn't provide enough fundamentals and reasoning on how impact mapping will benefit the readers.
5. The term Gojko used like "deliverables", "actors" and "impact" can be much better phrased to be much understandable. Every single time when deliverables is used, my brain have too rephrase it too features.

What I like:
1. I love the structure of impact mapping on how we must think of the impact first instead of thinking of features to build.
2. The book is short and can be read in 1 go.

With a bit of restructuring and optimising so that the readers can implement this quickly in their business, I believe this book can be on par or even better than the Lean Startup by Eric Ries.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Easy to read, but powerful concepts presented 30 décembre 2012
Par Janet Gregory - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Easy to read, but powerful concepts presented. The first thing I tried after I finished reading Impact Mapping, was to try it out on one of my own exercises. I found it fascinating how differently I thought of what I wanted to accomplish. By creating a simple map of a real situation, I learned so many things that I hadn't even considered. I do recommend trying to draw an impact map on something concrete to cement the ideas.

I have used mind maps to get clients to think about areas that might be affected by new features, but impact maps go one step further. They give us concrete ways to consider how measurable goals are supported by stakeholders (actors), and how those actors are impacted (negatively or positively changed behavior) before we even think about the deliverables.

I believe this is what many teams are missing in their development cycle, answering the question " Are they really building something that matters". In Impact Mapping, Gojko Adzic has brought together many ideas from different sources. Simplicity at its finest - complex ideas presented in an easy to read manner.
