In Test-Driven Development (TDD), you write a test that fails before you write the code that makes the test pass. Expanding on that concept, Glenayre Technologies set up its test organization to drive project management issues, too. The test group there serves as a catalyst for involving customers early in the process, resolving issues between development and product management and making sure that management has realistic expectations about the project. They explore launch-related issues such as packaging, documentation, system configurations, and upgrade procedures at the beginning of the project and track them throughout.
