This paper describes a case study of agile testing adoption in a legacy software product development referred here as Global Configurator Product (GCP). The stakeholders are distributed across locations in Germany, India and the U. S. Product development was practicing waterfall development model while adopting scrum. This paper shows challenges encountered by the testing team. The testing team evolved practices in the areas of new role mapping for test managers and testers, new responsibilities for test manager and tester, strengthening technical and soft skills of the testing team and adopting agile testing strategies. These practices contributed towards maximizing testing effectiveness and the product successes. This paper also demonstrates agile test pyramid and test-quadrant mapping with our testing and measures testing effectiveness with the help of testing metrics. The paper targets scrum masters, test managers and testers in agile software development.
