Examples from Paychex's practice of Agile provide ideas that are applicable across all sectors and disciplines

How Quality Is Integrated Into Agile Development and Management Processes

Agile software development stands at the forefront of methodologies for creating software.  In this session, we'll lay the groundwork with a brief overview of Agile software development.  From there, we'll delve into best practices, tooling, and real-world examples that seamlessly integrate quality into our processes.  The iterative nature and philosophies of Agile not only drive software development, but also foster a culture of quality, offering valuable insights to individuals and organizations dedicated to pursuing excellence.
