One of the most pervasive questions we're asked by people testing within an agile environment is how to perform test planning when you've only got two weeks for a sprint - and you're usually asked to start before specifications and other work is solidified. This evening we plan on exploring one of the most effective tools your speaker has used to get a test team started working at the beginning of a sprint and perhaps even earlier. We'll be conducting a working session using the ACC method first proposed by James Whittaker and developed over actual practice in mobile, web, and "big data" application development.
