"Agile Testing Essentials LiveLessons is based on fundamental concepts from Lisa Crispin's and Janet Gregory's two best-selling books, Agile Testing: A Practical Guide for Testers and Agile Teams, and More Agile Testing: Learning Journeys for the Whole Team. By the end of the course, participants will understand how testing fits into short and frequent delivery cycles and how each team member can contribute to the success of a quality product. Every team member, including testers, programmers, team facilitators, business analysts, designers, product owners and product managers, will find value in this course. Goal: To introduce basic understanding of how agile teams build quality into their product, with the whole team engaged in testing activities throughout the delivery cycle. Testing is critical to the successful delivery of a quality product,a phase to be executed right before delivery. Approach: Each topic starts with a presentation of the material, assisted with slides and/or a live discussion between Janet and Lisa. Examples are used throughout to help explain the topic, and there is an opportunity for participants to practice different techniques through exercises. After each exercise, Janet and Lisa discuss how they approach the exercise and guide participants in connecting what they've learned with their own teams and projects."--Resource description page.

Written primarily for undergraduates Systems Analysis & Design courses in CIS and MIS programs. It is designed for courses seeking a streamlined approach to the course due to course duration, lab assignments, or special projects. The text reflects current changes in systems analysis and design. The move to structured analysis and design in the late 1970s was considered to be a revolution in how systems development was conducted. We are undergoing another revolution in systems development now, as we move away from complex, plan-driven development to new approaches called "Agile Methodologies." Although the best known Agile Methodology is eXtreme Programming, there are many other approaches. More and more systems development involves the use of packages in combination with legacy applications and new modules. Coverage of the make versus buy decision and of the multiple sources of software and software components has been moved forward in the book to highlight the salience of these topics.

The failure effectively to sustain IT systems and react to change - due to the huge investments that organisations make in these systems - is likely to impact on an organisation's bottom line. This means that an ad hoc approach to IT Service management is not an option. It is vital to focus on business value, good ROI, speed to market, and delivery of solutions in response to change. Agile approaches mean an incremental method to change, early delivery of business value, and collaborative work towards change. Understanding and employing ITIL, PRINCE2, and DSDM together can provide the potential for a well run infrastructure which is responsive to change and will not halt progress. This publication offers practical guidance on how to deliver an IT Service by employing ITIL, PRINCE2, and DSDM Atern together and provides an overview of all three approaches, and describes the benefits of each. It also describes the issues that arise from implementing ITIL, the structure and content of PRINCE2, the breadth of DSDM and how they fit together, where the common areas sit, and where the specialities for each exist.
