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 von 5 Sternen The lean start-up hands-on 16. Juli 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
For those who read The Lean Start-up by Eric Ries and need more hands-on advice, this is the book for you. I am a fan of mind-mapping adhere it is applied on lean software development. The book is written as a step by step guide of how to apply lean principles in pratice. a very useful tool. I highly recommend this book.

If you read the book on the Kindle the graphics are hardly readable, however.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An instant classic 8. April 2013
This is the third book from Gojko I've read, after 'Bridging the communication gap' and 'Specification by example'. Every one made a big impact on my personal view of software development and each one of them ranks highly in my favorite software related books list. This book is although it's the shortest of them, by far the most impressing one to me. It's pretty dense and I believe it will set the bar for modern agile product development in the next years. Highly recommended reading for decision makers and product owners in a software company!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great reading! 2. Juni 2014
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
I strongly recommend this book to both technical and business readers. The author present scenarios where impact mapping technique is very valuable and can make huge differences before implementing features in the product. There is much more to be discussed and aligned upfront to the SW development of a product. Quite often is hard to understand the real reason why certain features have been asked for. The author present techniques that can help the team to decide/analyse what will be the main actors and impacts that those actions could represent. As this was very interesting, I finished the book in 2 days reading. I am looking forward to read more books from the same author. Thanks a lot!

Impact Mapping is an extremely helpful yet (kind of) simple method to explore options on a high level perspective and support decision making. It will help you keep a big picture (of your project or product development) in mind, while making rational decisions and planning experiments in order to get the biggest/fastest business value. It is rare that I want to post every second sentence of a book on our internal company newsletter. A must read for managers, agilists and decision makers.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A conversation with a really smart guy :-)! 17. Dezember 2012
Von Linda Rising - Veröffentlicht auf
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 von 5 Sternen This is a brilliant tool, clearly described, that you can put to use immediately 3. Januar 2014
Von Paul Klipp - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Essential guidance in a useful, useable format on a technique that encourages product partners to build the right product 15. Dezember 2012
Von Ellen Gottesdiener - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
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.

2.0 von 5 Sternen just a tool to add to your toolbox 15. Februar 2014
Von Diego G Schmunis - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The book starts with a very long intro. It takes the author 20+ pages to get tot he core explanation f the system. Then he talks about various aspects of software/product development and finds a way to justify using impact mapping no matter the task.. This gets a bit repetitive and frustrating as it feels like the author is trying to hard to sell us on his method. The end of the book comes quick with very light ideas on how to optimize the method.

Overall I didn't find anything revolutionary or truly innovative. Still I'll probably fire up my mind mapping software tonight and start thinking about integrating it into my overall product management methodology

5.0 von 5 Sternen Easy to read, but powerful concepts presented 30. Dezember 2012
Von Janet Gregory - Veröffentlicht auf
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.
