CAUTION: This book could seriously improve the way you deliver software!!!,
This review is from: Specification by Example: How Successful Teams Deliver the Right Software (Paperback)
The concepts in this book, process patterns as Gojko describes them, seem quite straight forward and that's partly because they are, partly because they are very well described within and partly because they just make so much sense.
Its pages describe one of the most effective ways in which teams can build the right product and build that product right. Specification by Example harnesses some key attributes of agile frameworks such as Lean & XP in a mechanism that allows teams to get from business ideas to an implemented and evolving (self-documented) product with the minimum of fuss or waste.
What's more from the research undertaken with real teams in real companies, you the reader, can learn from the many other practitioners who have been using and honing these techniques in the field (that's a real field by the way, with grass and everything).
I think it's rare to get this amount of good practical advice from so many teams distilled into a single reference guide alongside the process.
A fantastic book which should be the accompaniment of every software team member!!!
