Illustrate multiple journeys on in one journey map to compare the experiences of two or more personas.
About journey maps with multiple personas
A journey map can be used to illustrate the experiences of more than one personas. Where do they show similarities or differences in their steps or emotions?
Each of the personas can have its own lanes e.g., a dedicated text lane or storyboard for each of the personas.
However you can also compare personas within one lane. The channel lane, emotional journey, dramatic arc clearly allow you to illustrate both personas at the same time. This way you can e.g., compare their satisfaction on the emotional journey and add both persona's satisfaction scores to the same lane.
How to add multiple personas to one journey map
To include multiple personas in one journey map:
- open/create a normal journey map
- click on the button "Add persona" on the journey map outline
- either pick a persona from the existing ones or create a new persona from there
Afterwards add lanes to your journey map and decide what persona each lane should focus on (Choose a persona for this lane). Please choose this carefully, you can't change it at a later point of time.
You can add personas to your journey maps anytime – either at the very beginning on the blank map, also when the journey map is filled.
How to duplicate one lane to use it for a second persona
Currently there is no direct way to copy single lanes, however there is a workaround for that: you can duplicate the journey to the second persona and delete the lanes that you don't need anymore.
