With powerful tools like cucumber comes great responsibility. Is the power going to your head?

Have you ever had thoughts like:

  • I'm going to lock my customers in a room and make them type gherkin until their heads bleed
  • I've given the developers EXACTLY what the app should do. Why are they still talking to me?
  • FIFTEEN Scenarios! For a log in form??!?
  • We need 6 people to spend 6 hours detailing a feature we MIGHT implement?

Let's talk about a few ways to build shared understanding and why our techniques tend to break down as the product evolves.
