Long-time agile coach and enterprise architect Mario Cardinal shows how to create executable specifications and use them to test software behaviour against requirements. Cardinal shows how to trawl requirements incrementally, step-by-step, using a vision-centric and emergent iterative practice that is designed for agility. Writing for analysts, architects, developers, and managers, Cardinal makes a strong case for the iterative discovery of requirements. Then, he moves from theory to practice, fully explaining the technical mechanisms and empirical techniques you need to gain full value from executable specifications.


You’ll learn to connect specifications with software under construction, link requirements to architecture, and automate requirements verification within the Scrum framework.
