When User Stories Are Not Enough

Tony Higgins

IT organizations adopting agile development often struggle when applying agile to anything other than small, mid-sized, or non-critical applications. Because IT organizations must deal with the myriad business rules, non-functional requirements, industry regulations, and associated audits, the software requirements and resulting user stories can easily become too complex and interrelated. Tony Higgins says that approaches are surfacing which allow complex IT environments to improve upfront scoping, promote reuse, embrace living documentation, and deal with continuous requirements from a testing perspective. Join Tony as he shares his experiences on how requirements and tests can become one, and user stories exist as executable tests using behavior-driven design. See how all this provides testers with what's needed up front and results in better support for agile testing within IT.
