Specification by Example Training
Master the art of collaborative requirement definition and testing with Specific by Example (SBE). Specific by Example is a collaborative approach to defining requirements and tests based on capturing realistic examples instead of abstract statements.
It is the cornerstone of any successful requirements and testing strategy with Agile and Lean processes, like Scrum, Extreme Programming, and Kanban. Join our two-day workshop to transform user stories into practical acceptance tests. Perfect for Agile enthusiasts seeking streamlined communication and quality-driven software.
What will you learn?
Discover how to apply Specification by Example (SBE) to bridge stakeholder-team gaps, build quality into software, and create systems that fit their purpose. Through engaging exercises and discussions, you’ll extend SBE, establish a testing and development source of truth, and design adequate specifications and tests for Agile teams.
Gojko Adzic, creator of this course, based this training on two of his books: “Specification by Example” and “Bridging the Communication Gap.” Through facilitated exercises and discussion, you will learn how to extend SBE and create a single source of truth for testing and development, avoid functional gaps and inconsistencies in specifications and tests, and run your own SBE workshop to facilitate collaboration
