Specification by example is the corner-stone of any successful testing and requirements strategy with agile and lean processes, such as Scrum, Extreme Programming and Kanban. This two day workshop teaches you how to apply specification by example to bridge the communication gap between stakeholders and implementation teams, build quality into software from the start, design, develop and deliver systems fit for purpose.
The workshop is aimed at product owners, business analysts, developers and testers working primarily in an agile or lean environment. It is based on Gojko Adzic’s books Impact Mapping, Specification by Example and Bridging the Communication Gap. Through facilitated exercises and discussion, you will learn:
- how to extend specifications with examples to create a single source of truth for testing and development
- how to avoid functional gaps and inconsistencies in specifications and tests
- how to run specification workshops to facilitate collaboration
- good practices for designing specifications with examples and acceptance tests for agile teams
- how to create a living documentation system to facilitate change and improve your process long-term
- how other teams, from small web startups to large distributed teams in investment banks, apply specification by example in their contexts
