Acceptance Test Driven Development (ATDD) is a movement within agile to improve the quality of and success of our projects by changing how we capture our requirements and by changing how and when we test. Borrowing from the Lean toolbox, we’ll use Value Stream Mapping (VSM) to compare traditional test & fix cycles to ATDD used in an agile context. Participants will be given an introduction to ATDD and VSM and will participate in creating and analyzing two Value Stream Maps. Target audience includes all members of the team including Testers, PMs, Developers and Analysts. Caution: Participants are warned that using VSM to map out your partner’s wasted efforts in completing household chores will not cause the harmony you imagined it would. For more of the tragic details, attend the session.
