Easy to read, but powerful concepts presented. The first thing I tried after I finished reading Impact Mapping, was to try it out on one of my own exercises. I found it fascinating how differently I thought of what I wanted to accomplish. By creating a simple map of a real situation, I learned so many things that I hadn’t even considered. I do recommend trying to draw an impact map on something concrete to cement the ideas.
When I was reading Ellen Gottesdiener and Mary Gorman’s Discover to Deliver – Agile Product Planning and Analysis, I had my highlighter, pencil and my sticky notes ready and I’m happy to say that I have many little pink stickers pulling me back to areas of interest, along with the notes I made as I was going through it. My library is filled with paperbacks (I’m not a fan electronic reference books), but I think this is one of my favourites as far as the feel of the book and the turning of pages.
