User Story Mapping
By Mikaela Robertson 16 March 2020 Activity Kit
Card sorting allows the scoping team to throw up all potential functionality up onto the wall. Once it's all up there we can begin to sort them into MUST haves, SHOULD haves and NICE to haves.
In an agile project, the goal of the card sorting activity is to be able to narrow down our first and potentially second deliverables out of the entire list of epics that your client created during brief. In a waterfall project it is used to define a clear roadmap for all epics.
