Above is a sample story map activity for a tester persona in a agile team. Its is based on life in the sprint for a persona. We have also mapped the emotions to the activities that the persona is involved with.
The activity details with positive emotions can be mapped to the “whats going well” and the activity details with negative emotions can be tagged to “what needs improvement”.
Once all team members do above activity and record their details in the retrospective chart, they can they create affinity diagram of related items and then pick top 2 areas to improve in the upcoming sprint.(As shown in figure below)
Team can discuss ways of improvement for the top 2 picked areas and track them for upcoming sprints.
Happy continuous improvement 🙂
