Overcommitment is rampant on agile teams, which kills motivation and undermines continuous improvement. Worse still, overcommitment creates a cycle of ongoing overcommitment as pressure increases and predictability decreases. Behavior-Driven Development (BDD) can break that cycle. BDD shortens feedback loops and amplifies shared understanding, making it easier to commit appropriately or to renegotiate commitments early. Learn how you can adopt BDD to cure overcommitment on your team.
