INTRODUCTION

Specification By Example (SBE) is a collaborative approach to building valuable, high-quality software. SBE aligns your development team using realistic examples instead of abstract statements as the focal point for discussing, discovering, documenting, implementing and testing requirements. SBE is particularly successful for managing requirements on large-scale projects of significant domain and organisational complexity.

WHAT’S COVERED?

  • Deriving scope from goals

  • Specifying collaboratively through all-team spec workshops or smaller meetings

  • Illustrating requirements using examples

  • Refining specifications

  • Automating tests based on examples …and more

YOUR FIVE KEY TAKEOUTS

  • How to describe the SBE process patterns

  • How to explain the benefits of using SBE

  • How to run effective specification workshops

  • How to create specifications with examples

  • How to utilise patterns for analysing examples …and more

DOES IT HELP MY FUTURE?

This course will get you started with SBE or take you to the next level if you’re already using it. It will reduce feedback loops in software development leading to less rework, higher product quality, faster turnaround for software changes and better alignment of activities in software development.

The course gave me a great understanding of what I can be doing to assist the teams in understanding the product requirements upfront, saving time in delivery to get it right.
