Notes, templates, tips and tricks for how to create an agile project 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.
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 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.
