How should I create an Agile Release Plan?

1. Start with User Story Mapping to arrange your delivery into a series of “Releases” that each deliver value as quickly as possible.
2. If you have multiple workstreams, summarise the release plan as a Roadmap Format. Make sure that you emphasise to all stakeholders that timings are based on estimates.

What is a User Story Map?

First published by Jeff Patton, User Story Mapping is an easy way to prioritise meaningful groups of user stories, as a team exercise, so that you plan and communicate a series of releases.

User Story Mapping

User Story Mapping is a brilliant approach by Jeff Patton to organise your backlog into a series of “slices” across your system (or “vertical slices”).

These slices form your “releases” and deliver value to your users.

This template helps with the User Story Mapping process.
