Speaker : Suma Shastry

Many a times, we see that a single team is responsible for development, QA and support for the product. It’s a challenging environment when multiple fix packs for older versions and a fresh new release goes in parallel and the team has recently adapted to agile practices.

In this session, I would detail out a case study and highlight the challenges we faced in our early sprint cycles, how we learnt lessons and applied them to the next sprints and effectively improved upon our deliverables.

The following concepts will be covered in this session 1.Being Agile – Effective Planning for the sprints (both Dev and QA) 2.Preparing for the deliverables – defining mile stones (For the sprint) 3.Better delivery – Effective scrums

Audience: Teams following or new to agile methods

Audience will be able to learn the techniques used to plan and deliver sprint items in better way. Challenges presented during the case study would serve as learning to the audience so that those mistakes can be avoided while applying these methods practically.


This session on “Smarter Sprint Cycles, Better deliverables” will be presented at the 1st IndicThreads.com Conference On Software Quality Assurance and Software Testing to be held in Pune, India on 5,6 March 2010.Click here for a list of other Sessions @ The Conference
