As a Quality Engineer, I find myself getting involved in higher level conversations in the very early parts of the SDLC. I’m working with the Product and Engineering Managers (yey 3-Hats / 3 Amigos), to try and figure out what to build next.
Turns out, this isn’t an easy thing to do, especially when trying to figure out what changes might have the biggest impact so we can evaluate our options.
One thing I’m learning more about, to see if it can help us is Impact Mapping, and I’m working though the resources here:
I’d love to know, wow are you getting involved in the requirements gathering process, and what methods and techniques are working for you to support the team figuring out the right things to build?
Have you tried Impact Mapping, how did it go?
What else is there, what worked for you? anything I should avoid?
