A reference guide on how to manage big impacts, 17 Dec. 2012
The book is intentionally concise and precise, since its purpose is to be a reference, both visual and textual. It describes a methodology on how to describe the impact that new projects/applications will have on the business. This methodology involves continuous and peer-oriented exchanges between business experts and senior consultants/IT experts. Its result is a visual map that helps understanding the goals of a projects and how the involved team can achieve them.
I still have to test by myself, but it seems that the methodology can be introduced quickly, given that the team is prone to it (and probably that the team is made by professionals already working together). Obviously mastering it is no way an easy task, and experience is required in order to be effective in impact mapping.
Overall a good reference on a technique that may change the way the teammates work together when defining a new project goals and the way to reach them.
