Presentation Title: Harmonizing Agile and CMMI Verification and Validation

Presentation Summary: Harmonizing CMMI and Agile is challenging but not impossible. First, you must find the balance between CMMI requirements for documentation and the Agile Manifesto declaration of valuing "working software over comprehensive documentation". Then you must convince the Agile practitioners of the value of any additional documentation. This presentation is a case study of integrating CMMI Level 3 Verification and Validation engineering practices with Agile software development in a large enterprise.
