Powerful and Easy: A Lightweight Connection Between GENESYS and Your Agile Toolset
In my last post, I promised tips and tricks for connecting GENESYS™ to your agile toolset. In this post, I’m going to walk through an example of how you can align parts of your systems architecture model with an agile epic and user story framework in a lightweight and simple-to-achieve manner. As I explored in my previous post, using your functional model as a basis for the agile framework, and connecting the two is a great idea if you want to connect your development efforts into your systems architecture.
Let’s use an example to illustrate how to perform this connection. Imagine your program is in a test and evaluation phase, and you have modeled your test program in GENESYS. You have laid out all your test activities and decomposed them into detailed test steps. Now you have been asked to create your test epics and user stories for each epic. What do you do next? How do you connect the two? The good news is that since you have created your test activity model, you can now directly use it to define the epics and user stories.
