During an iteration planning meeting, the team is sharing their thoughts about a user story. The product owner advises that the customer should have one screen to enter information. The developer explains that there are technical limitations for the feature, due to the amount of information needed to be captured on the screen.

In practice that can only be realized by automated tests iii. Test-First and Continuous Integration Practice require that the regression test suite is executed whenever changed code is checked-in. In practice that can only be realized by automated tests iv. Iterations or sprints are of fixed length. The team must guarantee that all tests can be completely executed at the last day of each iteration/sprint. In practice, that can only be realized by automated tests v.
