Description

Successful teamwork in an agile environment

You are looking for ways to specify, develop and test software faster, more effectively and with minimum 'waste'. Acceptance Test Driven Development (ATDD) and Specification by Example are agile methods in which you work closely and effectively with your development team and client to achieve good results quickly and efficiently.

Specification by Example
Specification by Example is an approach that gives testing a new position, away from the critical path. Testing will become a productive task, instead of a detective task.
