DescriptionExample based approach to Product Refinement is a proven technique which requires all the stakeholders to collectively study the requirements, provide as many examples which can cover the functional, non-functional, boundary conditions and assumptions. Also termed as Specification By Example, the procedure can be used as an extension of 3C or replacement of it to start at the very beginning of product feature and idea generation. The session is aimed at both beginners and experts, anyone who has experienced scrum for sometime. Audience: Product owners, Developers, Testers, Architects, Designers

Tests can be defined before the development starts 5. Assumptions, dependencies and boundary conditions can be easily exposed.
