Acceptance Criteria

Defining the acceptance criteria for any project for release becomes a very difficult ask. The acceptance criteria is so because , not all project can have the same acceptance criteria, yet the client expects the same acceptance criteria for all projects. This is the irony.

In any case, the following list can be used as a starting point, with some variations

Acceptance Criteria
