In a user story mapping session, we should start by Identifying the different user types, then their goals or outcomes (represented on the map as activities), and the goals or outcomes of the company (represented on the map as versions or releases).
So for me it makes sense to try to deduct backbone tasks from user activities.
But in his book, Jeff Patton has an example (Everyday life) where he does the opposite, he first list all the tasks, then group them by higher goals or Activities.
So I am confused. From top goals to tasks, or from tasks to top goals ?
