Visual story mapping is more than creating your run-of-the-mill to-do list. It is the best technique to enable your entire product management team to visualize multiple dimensions of information – and focus on how everything will come together to form a successful solution. Visual story maps align all product managers and create a common understanding of what needs to get done and how to go about doing it.

If you’re not convinced yet, here are the top reasons why easy agile user story maps are better than any other product management tool out there.

User story maps paint the bigger picture

Visual story mapping gives a holistic view of the entire project, including types of stories, story and project viability, the flow between stories over time, alternative way of completing a single story, the priority of stories and the planned completion or increment of each story and its related product. The visual presentation of the product backlog (big picture) in the form of stories brings all the product management team members onto the same page, for optimal productivity.
