Specification by Example is conceptually different from traditional specification or testing processes, especially in the way it relies on collaboration. Manning author Gojko Adzic interviewed a number of teams to see how they approached collaboration on specifications. Their approaches varied greatly, from large all-hands workshops to smaller workshops, and even to informal conversations. In this article, based on chapter 6 of Specification by Example, Adzic describes the most common collaboration models along with specific benefits of each.
