"Before we adopted story mapping, we were misusing Trello to handle both our in-sprint workflow and our longer range workflow across multiple boards, and while Trello is fine for our in-sprint workflow, every attempt to use it for the longer range planning would be a false start."

Design the product and schedule development

A good product development begins with planning...

Step 1 - Design product's story map

Discover activities. Specify users' main activities then split them into smaller user steps. Organize steps into a narrative flow to find holes in the product.
Explore the product. Fill your backlog's body up with task cards.
Prioritize tasks. Move important tasks ahead others on your story map.
Slice out viable/working releases.  Determine the MVP and organize the rest of the tasks into working or tangible releases.

Step 2 - Set up development's workflow and sync StoriesOnBoard to Trello

StoriesOnBoard will synchronize card statuses on the backlog during the development process. Follow projects progression on the board and detect delayed tasks. Progression tracking on story map is always easier than on Trello board.

Step 3 - Push tasks to the Trello board

Once you have set up synchronization, you are able to send tasks to your Trello board. One of the biggest benefits of the integration is that you don't have to flood the project management board with all tasks.

Step 4 - Keep your Trello board clean and stay focused

When developers finish all tasks, clean the board by archiving cards. You can archive or delete the cards without losing data, StoriesOnBoard preserves tasks on the product backlog.

Avoid failures by discovering holes in the product

Step 1 - Build your products backbone 

Create user story map from scratch by collecting activities and user steps. Follow the narrative flow to get whole journey. 

Step 2 - Import cards from Trello

Import Trello cards and arrange them below activities. If there is no task beneath a user step, there should be a missing feature. Explore what feature can solve the step or how a feature can serve a better user experience.

Step 3 - Improve the product by rediscovering it on a story map

So you've found holes and solved the issues but what's next?  You'll get tons of opportunities after story mapping. Get ideas how to improve your product.

Implement emerging ideas effectively

Putting new tasks directly into product development workflow is the worst solution.

Step 1 - Rebuild product backlog on a story map

First things first, import cards into the story map. StoriesOnBoard organizes tasks into columns for a better view.

Step 2 - Create an agile workflow for new ideas

This workflow lets you
- analyze new items and don't let you develop something useless
- prioritize new tasks on a story map and guides you to schedule them
- estimate new tasks and give help to release/sprint planning

Works with SCRUM?

While a scrum team is working on a sprint the scrum master can collect feedback and ideas. SM keeps unscheduled and unestimated tasks away from the dev team and avoids losing the pace.
