In this talk Jenny Martin, Chris Priest and Pete Buckney (The Sparkle Team) share their experience on a government-funded R&D retail project with Sparkle CS and their application of BDD and agile testing techniques.
The talk will explore how using lean principles with a laser focus on maximising opportunities for feedback (MOFF) rather than on a minimal viable product (MVP) a team can accelerate delivery and respond quickly to constantly changing market pressures.
Jenny, Chris & Pete will talk through how the business was placed at the heart of the project through the use of techniques such as Impact Mapping and Specification by Example and how they were able to maximise business input by placing a strong focus on the objectives and value demonstrated during the showcase (feedback opportunity)
With aspirations of high value, business facing, executable specifications the team also explored some options to integrate their living documentation system (confluence) with cucumber more comprehensively than current offerings and would like to share the outcome with you.
