We bring feature specs to life

Delibr will keep your feature specs agile during implementation, while having the team involved and solve controversial questions on the go in a structured way. No more obsolete specs!

1 - Idea to specification

Write feature specs in a fun and free-flowing way, and enrich the structure with questions to be decided.

2 - Solve outstanding questions

Involve the team and escalate controversial questions by adding, rating and commenting options and pros/cons in a structured discussion.

3 - Let the spec evolve

Allow the feature spec to evolve during implementation, while keeping the team involved over Slack, by letting them see reports on new questions and decisions.

1 - Idea to specification

  • Specify the feature either as a single person or in a small group by a whiteboard
  • Write the specification down as a series of questions and decisions, and when relevant, also add alternative options, and pros/cons
  • If any question is not ready to be decided, leave it open and involve the team

2 - Solve outstanding questions

  • Quickly review the specification as a list of questions and decisions
  • Escalate open and controversial questions by adding, rating and commenting options and pros/cons in a structured discussion.
  • Make decisions based on structured discussions.

3 - Let the spec evolve

  • New questions can be added at any time, even during implementation.
  • If anyone disagrees with a decision it can be poked. Then the team can add, rate and comment the options and pros/cons in a structured discussion.
  • People no longer involved can keep an eye on how the spec evolves and engage in the spec when necessary

Write in free flowing mode with enriched structure

  • Write specifications as free-flowing text, starting from a blank sheet
  • Add indentation to text bullets to create sections with headers to the specification
  • Enrich the structure by setting the type of the bullets to questions, options, and pros/cons
  • Use the enriched structure to create reports and to have structured discussions

Deep dive into questions and have structured discussions

  • Comfortably rely on being able to resolve controversial decisions
  • Whenever a decision is controversial, make a deep-dive
  • Jointly add, rate, and comment the options and their pros/cons
  • Have a structured discussion based on a visualization of how the team thinks

Clear picture of decisions and outstanding questions

  • Extract a report from the specification with only the questions and the decided options
  • See at a glance what has been decided and also what questions are open
  • Get a report on the developments since you where last involved
  • Poke decisions you disagree with to trigger a discussion

Involve directly from Slack

  • Use Slack to quickly get input from the team with surgical precision
  • Get notifications on discussions and decisions
  • Ask team members with knowledge on a topic to add options and pros/cons
  • Ask team leads for decisions once a question is prepared

Linked to issue tracking (Coming soon!)

  • Link specifications to issues in JIRA or cards in Trello
  • Get help with the structure, know where specs belong
  • Never look for the specification, direct link to/from JIRA/Trello
  • See the specification in text form directly in JIRA/Trello
