They are some abbreviations like: Once we reach 1000 participants, we assign them rooms Which can be easily translated into
This can be easily read by business as by developers. If you can model your solutions towards this kind of testing, which not necessarily must be performed with tools for BDD but can be easily done by introducing Event Sourcing and structuring your tests like in Lokad CQRS examples then you can finally start to discuss business ideas with business instead of describing how your db is updated. And this, for sure makes the difference.
