Shared understanding of desired and undesired behaviors for each new product feature is key to delivering value to the business frequently and predictably. However, many teams lack this understanding even as they start coding. As team members, we can explore feature specifications early, contributing towards successful and timely delivery.
In this talk, Janet takes example mapping techniques and shows how you can use structured conversations and the 7 Product Dimensions to enhance the experience. With a testing mindset, we can elicit examples from stakeholders, and help turn those into tests that guide development.
