Talking Experience Canvas at IIBA Vancouver

Dave Sharrock spoke at the IIBA Vancouver on May 16 to explain how to effectively estimate the value of requirements with the Experience Canvas

I spoke about Experience Canvas and Agile at the IIBA (International Institute of Business Analysis) Vancouver Chapter on May 16 during a sold-out event. The title of the talk was Estimate Value to Deliver Value: Effectively Estimate the Value of Requirements with the Experience Canvas.

Dave Sharrock at IIBA Vancouver in May 2016

Agile organizations move work to dedicated teams, rather than move people to projects. In order to succeed, the Business Analyst needs to continually compare the value of different projects or work requirements to make sure that the teams are working on the most valuable items at any one time. But how can you compare new features that increase your profitability with platform migrations that increase your system stability or administrative features that reduce operational overhead? Where do BAs spend their time and how do stakeholders get their critical projects done?

The Experience Canvas provides a one-page requirement definition that allows stakeholders to effectively discuss and estimate the value of each requirement. Using the Experience Canvas, we show how: Stakeholders can compare and contrast the value of very different requirements with very different objectives, Business Analysts can estimate return-on-investment using effort estimates from the team (investment) and value estimates from the stakeholders (return).
