If you have ever done or tried to do behavior driven development, you know that finding the right scenarios (ie. tests) and writing the Gherkin feature files with the Given/When/Then steps is not so easy. Many teams leave this task entirely for the developers. Others try to use the sprint planning meeting to discuss the exact phrasing. None of these are really perfect. Regarding my experience, for having good scenarios, you have to have a good sprint planning. In this session I am going to talk about what makes a sprint planning good and how you can facilitate your sprint planning meeting in a way that it helps finding the right examples. You will hear about Specification by Examples, the „Three Amigos“, example mapping, really good acceptance criteria and also about team motivation, but more importantly you will hear about how to use them efficiently in practice.
