Product Owner Group – Acceptance Criteria

Please update your RSVP so we can get a true headcount for Wednesday and hopefully accommodate some our our wait listed people!

Join other Product Owners to network and grow as a community of practice. This event will have a limited headcount.

“Sometimes Good Stories Just Behave Badly…”


Product Owners – Remember when… you wrote the perfect user story, but what the developer created didn’t behave the way you expected? Did you wonder “What the heck happened here? It seemed so SIMPLE…” Or did you ask yourself “What’s the best way to write acceptance criteria? And just how far do I need to go?”

If this sounds like you, then you won’t want to miss our June workshop learning to build acceptance criteria using a practice designed by Dan North named “Behavior Driven Development.” Sometimes referred to as the “given-when-then” format, BDD evolved from agile practices to help describe the desired behavior of an application and help the product owner describe testable scenarios. In this workshop, we’ll practice a simple but effective technique called example mapping that feeds directly into Behavior Driven Development. This technique will help you learn to create and write Acceptance Criteria that will make even a badly formed User Story look like it’s ready for the party.
