Test Driven Development seems very much like pure technique, but that's just because technique is easier to point at than what it really is: attitude. When you lead your teams towards TDD, you need to focus on their worldview and let them use that to build technique. GeePaw explores five essential premises leaders need to understand to guide their teams into full-on TDD.
The Money Premise -- We're in this for the money.
The Judgment Premise -- We'll rely on individuals making local decisions.
The Correlation Premise -- Internal quality is productivity.
The Chaining Premise -- We'll test mostly in very small parts.
The Steering Premise -- Tests & testability are first-class design participants.

Learning Outcomes:
  • A basic understanding of the deepest attitudes of the TDD approach.
