OVERVIEW

Transition sound traditional test practices into an Agile development environment.
By using a step-by-step approach, this course documents how to transition from traditional test practices to an Agile testing approach. Learning the goals of Agile will help you transition, implement, and monitor testing in the high-speed Agile testing environment. Agile principles add value to your organization.

Building on traditional risk-based test practice, we are now being challenged by incremental delivery. To address, and not inhibit, we examine the concept of pair testing. Strengthening relationships in a team setting helps to build a sense of common purpose. Working in parallel eliminates hand-offs, late stage testing, and an opportunity for incremental confirmed component delivery. This program builds on what we know and adapts to what we have: Agile delivery. Traditional methods become a barrier under new development methods and place further pressure on the test team to feel a sense of value compromise. The new-found, high-speed test delivery opens new areas of opportunity to build strength in product quality, process improvement, and test confidence.

Learn to transition to Agile testing practices across the entire release cycle. Despite changes in methods and approaches, we continually slide back into old test habits. Often we leave methods behind, rather than transition from them. We throw everything away and do a wholesale replacement without putting to bed the reasons for change. Most testing works but only within the development context that it was framed. The program will reflect tradition against Agile testing, what changes we must make, and the role that we will play. Testing is not a service but an integrated part of the development team.
