Chapter Meeting - Case Study: Putting Agile to the Test: A Case Study for Test Agility in a Large IT Project

Agile best practices can be applied to a variety of situations. Most prevalent is IT projects, often for software development. But can you apply agile to a ‘portion’ of a software implementation project? This presentation will provide an overview of a successful example where agile techniques were applied to a multi-year, multi-million-dollar IT program – specifically to the testing phase.

In this presentation, the following topics will be explored:

  • Scenario (what was the scope?)
  • Challenges (how did we get here?)
  • Approach (what agile principles were implemented?)
  • Benefits (what did we do right?)
  • Lessons learned (what could we have done differently?)

After examining this case study, you will have a greater appreciation for the testing complexity of a large-scale software implementation as well as techniques that can be applied quickly to your current project.

Session Takeaways:

  • Understand how agile techniques can be applied to the testing portion of a large project - via a case study.
  • Appreciate the scope, challenges, approach, artifacts, benefits and lessons learned for our project.
  • Be able to apply agile techniques and tracking tools to projects in your work environment.
