Build the backbone of the product or project
User story mapping expends a lot of effort focusing on the end user, so you need to frame the problem and the user's goal(s).
What are the main requirements that need to be satisfied using the product?
Let's write down these goals in a narrative flow if it's possible.
Brainstorm all this with a team.
Build the backbone of the story map
Now we have the product backbone, let's find out how to solve some steps. You don't need to think in features, just write down the user stories.
E.g. "As a visitor, I want to land on a clear, easy-to-understand website".
Add user personas, notes, and useful ideas to each card.
Prioritize user stories on the story map
Prioritize key user stories that are of higher value or can be easily developed.
To do this, you can choose the prioritization method available in the app or you can choose your own.
Display the priority order of user stories on the story map: drag the high-priority cards on top of the others.
Slice the story map into JIRA versions
To schedule the development process, the backlog should be sliced horizontally into releases.
Frame the MVP by putting the cards in the first release. Re-tell the narrative flow of user stories so as not to miss anything important.
The next step is to group the user stories around the features that work and schedule the next releases.
Push user stories to Jira
Top-level story cards can be synchronized as epics, and user stories remain the same in Jira after the integration is set up.
Depending on the size of your backlog, you can synchronize goals with epics ors steps with epics.
You can also send the backlog per release to keep your JIRA project clean. You can then break down user stories into tasks in the issue tracker tool.
