8/10 @ 6 PM ET - Discovering Requirements, BDD Style!

Link visible for attendees

Raj Indugula & George Lively will join the DC Lean+Agile Meetup on August 10 @ 6 PM ET.

Topic:

Discovering Requirements, BDD Style!

Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) always begins with a conversation. At times, a simple conversation is enough to convey the essential business need, but sometimes a little more structure is needed to really understand the problem we are trying to solve.

In this session we introduce Features Mapping, a structured, intuitive approach for business stakeholders and team members to collaboratively discover essential product requirements. Using concrete examples, we will illustrate the technique and how it can help teams not only build a deeper understanding of the problem they are solving, but also help define more actionable acceptance criteria, and a better set of test cases.
