Thanks for using Example Mapping for Jira!

Example Mapping can help your team have a kickass story kickoff!
Now, you can Example Map directly inside Jira!


Example Mapping Quickstart

Example mapping is a BDD technique for driving the conversation around a story. The main benefits are:

TeamUp Labs' Example Mapping for Jira application provides all the above benefits as well as:

Story Kickoffs (aka refinements, breakdowns, 3amigos) are great opportunities to use Example Mapping. The team should gather together (either in person or remotely) and discuss the story, starting with a blank slate. Anyone in the team is free to contribute to the kickoff by suggesting a rule, which should then be captured. A rule characterizes some of the behaviour the story should deliver. The team can then illustrate the rule using examples. Examples should cover the happy and sad paths, and will help your team identify edge cases. You can have as many examples for the rule as the team can identify. You can create as many rules with examples in the kickoff as the team suggest. If your story has a lot of rules, it may be worth considering splitting the story into smaller deliverables.
