Session Description

When a major financial institution that has successfully adopted Waterfall Methodology with Six Sigma principles decides to embrace an agile methodology, it poses several hurdles that the teams must overcome to adapt to a time boxed delivery structure. This is especially true of the testing teams, who are now involved upfront in the project. In this real world example, Michael and Sadhu will give you an understanding of how the bank's testing teams overcame these challenges, ensuring smooth coordination between geographically scattered teams. They will also discuss how planning tools were integrating with test management tools like Quality Center that evolved to meet the needs of iterative deliveries. Finally, you will learn about their next steps in the agile arena.
