Use flexible planning tools such as Capacity Planning, Task Boards, and Backlog Management to adopt agile practices at your own pace. You can also use the same tools to progressively improve your current methodology and accelerate velocity in your organization.
Ensure quality with enhanced code review workflows to facilitate the collaboration among developers and provide a rich environment to review code and propose changes.
Use the storyboard tool to easily capture lightweight requirements from stakeholders. You can foster new ideas, get feedback, and directly integrate with the development process. Plus, you can gain full traceability and visibility into the progress and quality of each requirement by tracking back-work items and test cases to business goals.
Continuously loop stakeholders into the development process by capturing comments with the feedback manager tool. You can then seamlessly integrate that feedback into the development process to make sure your team builds what the customer wants.
Use Continuous Unit Testing and Test Impact Analysis to discover problems early and often while you focus on writing code. Use any unit test framework through extensible unit testing.
