Question 2: Your organization has asked you to transition from traditional project management to a more agile approach. However, most staff members are well-versed and attached to the concept of baselines being crucial components of any project. Therefore, one of the first tasks will be to instruct the staff into the Agile way of viewing baselines, which is:

- Baselines are often an artifact of attempted prediction.
- The baselines are part of the backlog.

- Test at all levels
- Acceptance Test-Driven Development (ATDD)
- Test-Driven Development (TDD)
- Acceptance Criteria Driven Testing (ACDT)
