Thomas Haver, Test Automation Architect

Topic – Example Mapping

Abstract

Example Mapping is a collaboration technique used by teams to help refine requirements. Every team should have a set of “ready” criteria that includes some kind of workshop between development team members to establish a shared understanding. In a time-boxed Example Mapping session, rules will summarize examples or constraints about a user story, and questions about outcomes or dependencies are documented for future refinement. The end result is requirements written as user behaviour with a shared understanding of all roles on an Agile team. The audience will participate in a live Example Mapping session and learn how to implement the workshop within their own team.

Top Takeaways:

  • Share knowledge about the application & feature to be developed between members of the team before committing to work
  • How to reframe requirements as specifications with examples, which become our functional tests
