Overview

Agile methods have become increasingly popular because they empower organizations to more quickly address emerging opportunities, to better ensure accurate fulfillment of functional requirements and to significantly enhance team productivity. Many organizations, however, are leery about employing agile methods for their safety-critical systems—since they have serious concerns about compromising those systems and thereby exposing themselves to completely unacceptable consequences.

In this webcast, IBM Rational Chief Evangelist Bruce Powel Douglass explains how proven QA best practices can enable organizations to reap the vital benefits of agile development while still maintaining the rigorous standards essential for the successful delivery of safety-critical systems.

By attending this webcast, you will learn:

  • The special role of Test-Driven Development in safety-critical systems QA
  • How Continuous Execution and Continuous Integration help QA teams mitigate risk
  • Best practices for Work Product Review and Task Audits in safety-critical QA
  • Keys to effective Incremental Development in agile teams
