Aristotle once said "Well begun is half done." User Stories need 3 C's to get the team going, not two. Don't skip the Confirmation/Acceptance Criteria!
There is help for Product Owners (or BA's) who want to write good acceptance criteria. ATDD and BDD suggest writing these acceptance tests in Gherkin notation. Given-When-Then may seem odd or intimidating at first glance, but it gets easier with understanding and practice. Writing good acceptance criteria for User Stories requires looking at Requirements in a slightly different way.. and maybe picking a tester's brain too.

Learn new ideas and techniques to help you get the most from your Product Backlog Refinement activities to benefit your teams and customers.

  • Overcome the fear of Given-When-Then format for acceptance criteria
  • What Testers should know that they don't know about how they can help their teams learn to test better
