F10 – 104: Testing Within the Shades of Agile

Track: Agile Testing

There is no cookie cutter solution or step by step guide to follow when determining how to effectively test across varied Agile projects. The testing approach needs to be adaptive and scalable to the project methodology, constraints, team dynamics, and corporate culture. Often, the tester will need to change their mindset on testing perceptions, expectations, and deliverables. Although the approach, techniques, and tools leveraged must be flexible, there are key success factors that can be applied almost universally. This presentation will highlight real-world experience of testing successfully within projects of varying degrees of Agile adoption. With practical examples, the presentation will provide adaptive test approaches for projects ranging from textbook adoption to experimentation as traditional teams begin their transition to Agile.
