Story Maps Guide and Templates
Unlock new superpowers for your remote team with story maps
Building alignment on remote teams (or in-person teams for that matter!) can be very challenging when we're building intangible experiences with our digital products, programs, and services. What's a team to do when they're looking for ways to be more effective, and collaborative?
Story maps have superpowers that help you collaborate with your remote team such as:
- Giving you a visual representation of an intangible experience
- Show the impact of user feedback
- Assign accountabilities with needed context
- They're a place to challenge your assumptions and focus your research efforts
- Make metrics matter
- Imagine different scenarios and paths in real time without making changes to your final product
- Getting Started Guide with visuals and examples
- Miro templates (for both paid and free Miro accounts)
Tips for opening the board in Miro:
- Paid Miro accounts can directly import the board backup file. Check out the support page on Restoring a Board from a Backup on Miro
- Free accounts will need to access the link provided and duplicate it to their account. To do so, click the link, when the board is loaded click the title of the board. That brings up a pop-up window with a Duplicate button. Click that to make a copy to your account. This page has more details.
You'll get a guide that breaks down story maps into approachable steps and Miro templates to help you get started.
