BDD with Cynefin

3rd April 2014 in London at Skills Matter

There are 13 other SkillsCasts available from CukeUp! 2014

This session was not filmed.

We're doing BDD. We're specifying by example. We're writing scenarios down and possibly automating them. We're having conversations, and the conversations are useful!

This session was a hands on workshop and therefore not recorded*

So what's next?

In this unique tutorial we mix BDD with Cynefin, the sensemaking framework that helps makes sense of the world around you and the problems you encounter. Find out where BDD works... and where it fails. Use the patterns you already know... but at scale. Identify risk, embrace uncertainty, continuously improve and create glorious innovation - not just in software, but in the whole of your life!

(Please note that this tutorial focuses entirely on the conversational aspects of BDD, and does not touch automation or tools.)
