Corporate Research Scientific Publications
This presentation will describe how selected agile practices,
including key elements of eXtreme Programming (XP), were successfully integrated
into a commercial Team Software Process project. The team chose this development
process (dubbed "TXP", for Team eXtreme Process) during their TSP launch,
with the goal of delivering to the business the best of both worlds:
TSP's focus on high product quality and management by data,
plus the benefits of agile development practices in focusing on adaptability
and customer satisfaction.
Attendees will learn the challenges, tradeoffs, and benefits experienced by
the team from blending agile practices with TSP, and will develop a better
understanding of how to successfully combine them in their own organizations.
The presenters are the TXP team's Process Manager and TSP Coach.
