The Agile Framework Series: Agile Testing
We find that quite often
with traditional testing models, that as the product grows, the amount of
testing grows exponentially, and QA invariably struggles to keep up. This means
you’ve got two big problems on your hands: a slew of technical debt in
addition to expensive and inefficient context switching.
So how can adopting Agile bring better quality to your efforts? Gain power over your work and take control, as we guide you through the principles of Agile Testing.
What to Expect:
Working in an Agile environment doesn’t, and shouldn’t, mean throwing out everything you know and replacing it with new processes without understanding what really needs to change.
During the two-day The Agile Framework Series: Agile Testing, we will explore the transition from traditional risk-based test practices into Agile testing practices that support incremental deliveries. Hand-offs and late-stage testing both impair Agility and incremental delivery of components. This course adapts to YOU and what’s needed to achieve Agile delivery. We’ll open areas of opportunity to build strength in product quality, process improvement, and test confidence.
Some of the concepts include:
- Introduction to Pair Testing
- Strengthening relationships in a team setting
- Contrast traditional against Agile testing
- Application of best practices
- Introduction of practical testing practices

What is Agile?
Agile Alliance defines Agile as, “the ability to create and respond to change in order to succeed in an uncertain and turbulent environment.”
For many, Agile is more of a mindset that incorporates a different way of approaching work. A number of complimentary frameworks, tools, and practices based on the values and principles expressed in the Agile Manifesto.
Teams embracing an Agile mindset are capable of solving complex problems through collaboration between self-organizing, cross-functional teams utilizing the appropriate practices for their context.
We’ll help you discover how to keep long-term focus and improve across department borders while dealing with everyday challenges.
