*** Quote of the Month ***

Instead of blindly accepting software requirements as a solution to an unknown problem, successful teams derive scope from goals. They begin with a customer’s business goal. Then they collaborate to define the scope that will achieve that goal.

Reference: "Specification by Example – How successful teams deliver the right software", Gojko Adzic, Manning, 249 pages, IBSN 978-1617290084
