Scale Your QA & Test: Testing with Multiple Teams in Large Agile Organizations
Agile practices are maturing, and more agile teams are making development and testing work in an effective way thanks to TDD, BDD, continuous delivery, and continuous deployment. However, there are many challenges still to conquer in agile practices, such as the lack of accountability for systems developed outside the team, environments with multiple teams where some teams practice agile and others do not, and organizations where testers are not well integrated into the team. Join Pablo Garcia Munos as he shares his experience testing in large agile organizations with ten teams or more. Pablo describes the ways he has successfully procured systems from external agile vendors, how the use of assessments such as Test Process Improvement (TPI) and metrics such as defect detection percentage (DDP) can help close the gaps in agile practices, and how those in QA and testing can be effective agents of change to help refine agile practices within their organizations.
