Description

Built-In Quality is a core value of SAFe®. It allows faster delivery of business value. One of the key practices in realizing built-In quality is Acceptance Test-Driven Development (ATDD) (also known as Behavior Driven Development (BDD). This course describes how the triad (customer, tester, and developer) creates acceptance tests to provide a joint understanding of the requirements. It shows how to use those acceptance tests as a communication and verification tool. Applying these skills streamlines communication within the organization, decreasing re-work, raising customer satisfaction, and promoting trust within the organization. These methods have demonstrated an ability to be able to lower released errors by up to 90%. This course is based on the SAFe recommended book Lean-Agile Acceptance Test-Driven Development by Ken Pugh.

OBJECTIVES
This course helps participants understand how to transform requirements accurately into testable
specifications. This is a collaborative, efficient manner that minimizes waste. It addresses requirements,
specifications, implementation and testing. You will learn:
• Principles of Acceptance Test-Driven Development
• How to turn requirements into acceptance tests
• What is a good acceptance test
• How to use acceptance tests as a communication vehicle
• How ATDD embodies SAFe’s core principle: Build Quality In
