Do you want to improve your test capability?

An organisation’s decision to shift towards a more agile & lean software development often leaves Testers wondering where they fit; promises of all the testing being automated, the whole team owning quality & light documentation appear to take away everything that Testers hold close to their heart.

Are you facing these challenges?
  • How does Agile testing affect the testing role?
  • How can we make testing a first class citizen?
  • How can we build in quality earlier in the development cycle?
  • What tools are available?
  • How do I create a test strategy?
  • How do I implement a test strategy?

The AgileTesting workshop tackles these issues providing you with practical takeaways enabling you to build test capoabilities.

What are people saying?

"The myth busters section was excellent! Good to see real examples, burn up charts explanation, and the interactive adaptive planning bit was also great. Relaxed, informal but informative facilitator. Interactive and practical tools to walk away with – not just theory!"
Code

"I knew about Agile planning and sizing but did not know how to use them properly. I will definitely recommend it, it was very informative."
Betfred

"My biggest fear was that this Agile structure just would not fit, but I think that we are working closely to this and are on a good path and identified new areas we have to work on. My favourite part of the workshop was the demo’s of the boards and how we could work through the sizing of projects."

Topics Covered

An organisation’s decision to shift towards a more agile & lean software development often leaves Testers wondering where they fit; promises of all the testing being automated, the whole team owning quality & light documentation appear to take away everything that Testers hold close to their heart. The iterative development cycle of Agile has not removed the need for Testers, but it has caused the roles & responsibilities of those doing the testing to change. So how do Testers fit in this fast paced delivery cycle? In this one-day intensive course we’ll introduce the principles behind Agile, understand how we test software in an Agile development team, and prepare you to hit the ground running and drive positive change within your team.

  • How your role as a Tester changes
  • What techniques and tools are available
  • What is Agile
  • Brief history of software development
  • Delivery Principles
  • Batch size
  • Feedback loops
  • Role and responsibilities of an Agile Tester
  • Day to day interactions with other team members
  • Typical duties carried out by an Agile Tester
  • Generalising Specialists
  • What to include in a test strategy
  • How to structure your test strategy
  • How to get buy in from the team/org
