Impact Mapping — How To Use It

Reading Time: 8 minutes Impact mapping is visual mapping technique for product development. Gojko Adzic invented this method to align teams to business objectives, test mutual understanding of goals and expected outcomes with stakeholders, focus teams toward the highest value features to deliver, and enable collaborative decision-making.

Impact mapping is highly driven by business improvement and business objectives. With SMART goals the development is more likely to be stopped at the right time because the deliverables have had — or do not have — the desired impacts.
