Influencing your Team Towards BDD & Agile Practices

Karen N. Johnson

About the Topic

We’ve shortened the software development release cycle and we are even moving towards continuous delivery, but our testing efforts still seem to have that waterfall-feel to it. How can we influence more Agile testing practices without feeling like our testing strategies have “fallen off the rails!"

First let’s look at a few of the common terms such as BDD and TDD and understand what each term means and what those practices look like in our daily lives. Next let’s explore small tactical practical ways we can influence adoption of early test thinking on our teams. Let’s also develop a few short concise “elevator pitches” that we can share with teammates, product owners and even senior management in those casual spur of the moment conversations that take place to help influence a continual and evolving adoption of BDD and Agile test practices.

Key Learning Objectives
  • Understand the terms BDD & TDD
  • Learn specific tactics to help move your team towards Agile testing practices
  • Develop an “elevator” pitch for promoting BDD for every layer of management
