About the book
This book presents case studies (of over 50 projects) of how successful Lean and Agile teams design, develop, test and deliver software efficiently.
Specification By Example is a must read for anyone serious about delivering software that matters. It is the result of a research on how teams all over the world specify, develop, test and deliver the right software, without defects, in very short iterative delivery cycles.
With case studies and real examples, this book helps you understand how successful teams implement specification by example, agile acceptance testing and behavior driven development to bridge the communication gap between stakeholders and implementation teams, build quality into software from the start, design, develop and deliver systems fit for purpose.
It presents the collective knowledge of about fifty projects, ranging from high-traffic web sites to internal back-office systems, implemented by teams as diverse as small startups to groups spread across different continents, working in a range of processes including Extreme Programming, Scrum, Kanban and similar processes often bundled together under the names Agile and Lean.
This book is for testers, business analysts, developers and project managers working on Agile and Lean projects or teams moving to an Agile development method, that want to improve quality, reduce rework and collaborate better with business users.
