Storyboarding: Uncovering The Problem

Jonathan Stewart continues his series on storyboarding:

If you have heard my “Data Visualization: How to truly tell a great story!” presentation, you will have heard me mention about using a storyboard to get a better understanding of the problem. Cole Nussbaumer Knaflic does a great job of introducing this concept in her book “Storytelling with Data” which is a great read and an excellent reference tool for anyone in the data viz world.

I have adapted to using her basic storyboard as my basis for my development and we will use it today as the foundation of our series.

Jonathan ends with a set of sample questions to ask.  These are just starter questions, but they’ll help uncover important but hidden business requirements.
