Daily build testing has proved to be an effective tool for managing integration problems. Introducing it however requires major changes to the whole development process and organizational culture. In this paper, we tell a tale of two organizations being in the process of introducing daily build practice into their organizations: one successful and one unsuccessful. Our results show that a daily build process is not amenable for a step-wise implementation. The majority of its requisite components must be in place before the process is introduced.
