Look inside

In this emerging software development practice, teams bridge the communication gap between business stakeholders and dev teams. From the experience of leading teams worldwide, author Gojko Adzic distills seven key patterns and many practical rules for effective ways to specify, test, and deliver software in short, iterative delivery cycles.

about the technology

Specification by Example is a collaborative method for specifying requirements and tests. Seven patterns, fully explored in this book, are key to making the method effective. The method has four main benefits: it produces living, reliable documentation; it defines expectations clearly and makes validation efficient; it reduces rework; and, above all, it assures delivery teams and business stakeholders that the software that's built is right for its purpose.
