Event Details

ABSTRACT: In the Business Analysis Body of Knowledge (BABOK) Agile Extension there is a technique called “Behaviour Driven Development” under the Get Real Using Examples section.  The aim of Behaviour Driven Development (BDD) is to provide a technique for documenting clearer, less ambiguous requirements and concrete scenarios that can be used for exercising those requirements.

Leveraging material from Gojko Adzic’s book 'Specification by Example' and real-life experience documenting requirements using this technique, the presentation will explain how a BA can use the Behaviour Driven Development technique to document and communicate requirements. Starting with a fictional list of features from a product backlog, Rebecca will show how to evolve a feature into examples; examples that can ultimately be turned into automated acceptance tests.

The presentation will provide attendees with a better understanding of:

  • The role of a business analyst on an Agile team
  • The benefits of using examples to clarify requirements
  • The User Story template
  • The Acceptance Criteria template
  • How to create good examples to exercise requirements
  • Common Behaviour Driven Development tools
