Subway mapping in Tallinn

I am on my way now to Tallinn and the NTD that are being organised in this beautiful city. On Thursday I will give a workshop on progress reporting in an Agile context. We will be experimenting with making our own subway map. Subway mapping is a well-known graphical presentation, but funny enough it is hardly ever used to report project progress and the dependencies between various Agile Teams. After this week that might change!

Please, if you are at the Nordic testing days, join my session, and surprise your project manager, PO or stakeholders with an effective overview of the projects testing progress and quality.  Since we have two hours I hope to have time to introduce a new variation of the subway map: the ambition map, used to manager improvements and align expectations.

    Two thumbs up for the presentation and the choice of topic! I consider this workshop one which added most value to my work from NTD, especially because of the ambition chart and its idea.
