These are all popular topics of discussion for teams who have recently adopted BDD with many “manual” testers being removed from teams, but this can be a mistake. BDD is great at discovering requirements, your “known unknowns” and “unknown unknowns”, before development starts but complete information discovery cannot occur for all but the most trivial projects. This is where Exploratory Testing by skilled testers comes in, it continues the discovery process after development starts and structured correctly it can find issues not found by automation alone.
• How automation can give a false sense of security to teams
• What is Exploratory Testing and when to use it
• How Exploratory Testing continues BDD’s discovery process
• Incorporate Exploratory Testing into your development process using Session-Based Test Management
