What is Behavior Driven Development (BDD)?
Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) is disciplined technique for building software in which the product owner, programmer and a tester all collaborate on system behavior also known as acceptance criteria for the feature that is about to implemented.
In another way we can say, there is still a gap between business and technical team and they misunderstand each other’s requirement. Therefore, BDD intended to improve communication and collaboration between technical and business professionals so that the delivery of software development projects should be as expected.
It assure all process of development stay concentrated on delivering actually what needs while meeting all necessities of the client.

It minimizes the risk of misconception and misinterpretations and or even a newbie can attend the project from anywhere.
- Confident Team -BDD makes team more confident and predictable in their work approach as they know they won’t break the code.
- Business value -Behavior Driven Development approach emphasis on Business needs and value. As it is client, users and business behavior and needs centric developers understand business value in a better way, work better and don’t build worthless features.
- Happy users -As BDD focus on business needs and requirements which means a user is going to get what they are looking for which means happy users which ultimately turns into a good business.

How trained team can successfully implement Behavior Driven Development practice in the project?
A trained BDD professional can successfully implement BDD approach in the project. Trained professional team can start from collaboration and communication amongst different stakeholders. They can discuss modifications and requirements with developers and test teams. Brief them on what the progressions will be, and how to read and the new strategy for documentation and integration into the code and test cases. If somehow the test fails to meet the requirements it’s easy for a professional to undo the changes.
