Using a set of stories from Indian companies, the keynote focuses on using Context Driven Testing as a possible way to ensure desired results on the testing projects. It is interesting to learn how without following best practices, the teams tasted success in their projects. The presentation provides insights into what made those stories worth a listen and learn from them. The speaker advocates continuous and creative evaluation of problem context and the value of that information to the stakeholders. If you are going to listen to these stories in this presentation, we warn you to be aware that you *cannot* see the same success if you try doing things we did.
