nice overview of speclog, a techtalk tool for impact maps, story maps and user stories.... SpecLog Overview and Concepts

I know that a few of us will be in Nashville in a couple of weeks for #agile2013.  I wanted to get a handle on who all will be there and whether we wanted to get together to talk more about #this, or perhaps that...

Nice presentation by Russ Miles, lots of overlap with the ideas presented in this group, mostly from a developer perspective.

The Product Owner Survival Camp is coming back in October. Based on the feedback from the first group of participants, we decided to completely restructure the event. It will be bigger and better, expanded to two days, and we’ve teamed up with thought leaders in the field to give the participants a wider variety of opinions and experiences. The next camp will be on 10 and 11 October 2013 in Vienna, Austria, co-organised by the wonderful people at TechTalk. There will be four half-day workshops, by David Evans, Christian Hassa, Chris Matts and me, on impact mapping, feature injection, user story mapping and effective user stories.

I ran across "Strategic Doing," a regional development process being spearheaded by +Ed Morrison at my alma matter, Purdue University. This seems like a very similar set of concepts, applied to a very different space.

I was especially intrigued by the line, "a new agile strategy discipline."

1. This message is a reminder to check out more about this work when I have some free time. (http://www.edmorrison.com/)
2. We may want to collaborate with him on our ideas. 
3. We may want to use the name "Strategic Doing." (It rocks, doesn't it?!)
4. We may want invite him to speak at #ThisCon.

Impact Mapping getting some more visibility in the linked post from Lisa Crispin.  FWIW, I've been having some really good results doing initial impact mapping workshops with product teams at my current client.  It's a boondoggle for me, as I'm "officially" working on a portfolio-level strategy, but I'm sneaking in opportunities to help out some of the teams I've been working with.
