the primary purpose of the Three Amigos session / three Amigos practice is to facilitate communication and collaboration among the key stakeholders – the business representative, the developer, and the tester. The session is typically held before refinement meetings and focuses on ensuring that everyone has a shared understanding of the user story and its acceptance criteria.
During the Three Amigos session, the three roles work together to discuss the user story, ask questions, and clarify any concerns. The goal is to identify any potential issues or misunderstandings before the user story is presented to the entire team in the refinement meeting. This helps to save time and effort as the user story will already be more refined and detailed.
While documentation is an important outcome of the Three Amigos session, it is not the primary purpose. Instead, the focus is on promoting collaboration and alignment among the key stakeholders and ensuring that the user stories are well-defined and understood by everyone involved in the development process
