How much money are you wasting on failed software?
Studies show that countries in the EU waste about €140 billion per year on making failed software; software that they don’t know if anybody wants and are unsure if anybody is going to use.
This workshop asks the question: How do we make software that achieves something and that has an actual impact on our customers/business rather than making software with no purpose.
Impact Mapping is a collaborative, strategic planning technique that helps organizations manage flexible roadmaps for iterative delivery, by clearly communicating assumptions, helping teams align their activities with overall business objectives and making better delivery decisions. Impact mapping can help you build products and deliver projects that make an impact, instead of just shipping software.

What is the end result of impact mapping? Read more ↓
Impact mapping helps to reduce waste by preventing scope creep and over-engineered solutions.
It provides focus for delivery by putting deliverables in the context of impacts they are supposed to achieve.
It enhances collaboration by creating a big-picture view that business sponsors and delivery teams can use for better prioritization and as a reference for more meaningful progress monitoring and reporting.
In short, Impact Mapping helps to ensure that the right business outcomes are achieved, or that unrealistic projects are stopped before they cost too much, by clearly communicating underlying assumptions and allowing teams to test them.
