Workshop: A Planning Meeting You’ll Love

14th April 2016 in London at CodeNode

There are 22 other SkillsCasts available from CukeUp! 2016 - the progressive BDD conference for testers, devs and product owners

Coming Soon

Before you pull a user story into development, it’s crucial to have a conversation to clarify and confirm the acceptance criteria.

Some people do this during their backlog refinement or planning poker sessions. Other teams have a specific three amigos meeting, specification workshop or discovery workshop, or do it during sprint planning.

Whatever you call this conversation, many teams find it hard: it’s unstructured, it takes too long and gets boring. The result is they don’t do it regularly or consistently, or maybe they just give up on it entirely.

We’ve discovered a simple, low-tech method for making this conversation short and powerfully productive. In this session we’ll show you how to apply this technique, called example mapping, with a fun and interactive workshop.

No laptops required.
