The use of stories to communicate dates back 30,000 years to the time when cave paintings recorded daily experience of people living as hunter-gatherers.
A disciplined approach to story-writing and requirements testing can improve requirements and the target solution dramatically. Business Stories can be shared as examples for developers to see what was intended to help their understanding, and of course, they also provide the basis for later acceptance tests.
Up-front requirements testing does not require extra effort - much of this analysis work would be done during acceptance test preparation anyway. This approach provides a step-up with business impact analysis, regression testing, and even test automation.
This webinar is a short introduction to the use of Business Stories in Software Development so people can get a first approach to this method.
By attending this webinar, analysts, developpers and testers will be able to:
- Understand how stories can be used as a common language between analysts, developers and testers
- write good Business Stories that capture accurate examples of a system in use
- find faults in requirements and create system and acceptance tests using the Business Story Method
