Using an experimental method, we found that customers, partnered with an IT professional, are able to use executable acceptance test (storytest)-based specifications to communicate and validate functional business requirements. However, learnability and ease of use analysis indicates that an average customer may experience difficulties learning the technique. Several additional propositions are evaluated and usage observations made.
