if this works? Did you test it?"
"You bet we did. In fact, we tested lots more than we normally test because the tester was able to focus on just this one piece."
Myrtle was thrilled with their progress but knew she wasn't ready to rush a new practice into use across the project without trying it again. She asked Brent to suggest another couple of features on which to try the same practice to ensure that the first success was not just an anomaly. Brent agreed and soon those features were implemented with similar speed and reliability.
Once the other cross-functional teams completed their features better and faster than expected, Myrtle took the risk and reorganized the project to create integrated feature teams and continued to implement feature by feature. The project was a success.
