March Lunch and Learn - User Story Slicing

Chapter Lunch Event

Tommy Norman
Breaking down product features into small, independently valuable increments is not easy. Sometimes it is not obvious where to reduce scope and how much scope is needed to provide real value. In this session, we will go through an approach using Story Mapping to identify specific product personas and their goals you are trying to meet and to ruthlessly slice and prioritize the components of a feature in order to truly find the simplest thing that will work.


Tommy Norman is Vice President of Agile Operations at Acklen Avenue in Nashville, TN. For over 25 years he has been helping clients build solutions using both Agile and traditional approaches as a CSM/ CSP/ CEC (Scrum Alliance), PSM I (Scrum.org), SAFe Agilist, and an 8 year recipient of Microsoft's MVP award in Application Lifecycle Management. Tommy is the coordinator for the Agile Nashville User Group, director of the Music City Agile Conference, a contributor to InformIt.com, Safari Books Online, Front Row Agile, as well as a frequent speaker at regional and national events.

Webinar: 20 Visio Tips in 60 Minutes


IIBA Nashville Chapter's own Christie Durand will be presenting "20 Visio Tips in 60 Minutes" based on Microsoft MVP for Visio, Scott A Helmers' teachings.

Uncover hidden dialogs, techniques, and features in Visio
Learn keyboard shortcuts and ribbon tips that will make you a Visio power user
Turn Visio diagrams into business intelligence dashboards

Most of us learned Visio by doing: a boss or a colleague said “Can you create an org chart of our division?” or “We need a flowchart of this process. By tomorrow.” or “Fred created this diagram before he left. Can you update it for Monday’s staff meeting?” We make do with what we know, but never had formal training or time to discover better techniques. This session will give you 20 tips and tricks to move you past where you are now and into a world of new features and enhanced productivity.

Scott A. Helmers is a Partner at the Harvard Computing Group, a software and consulting firm that assists clients with understanding and implementing business process solutions. He is a co-inventor of TaskMap (www.taskmap.com), a Visio add-in that allows anyone to document, analyze, and improve all of the important aspects of any business process.

Scott has been named a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) for Visio every year since 2008 and is the primary Visio expert at Experts-Exchange.com. The author of three books from Microsoft Press, including "Visio 2016 Step by Step," Scott has taught thousands of people to use Visio and other technologies more effectively. He has also helped companies create custom Visio add-ins to enhance organizational efficiency and employee productivity.
