Agile Testing: Team Tactics that Deliver the Goods

Add to calendar

Let’s face it—agile testing is different. Challenges exist in successfully integrating within the teams themselves. Scrummerfall continues to run rampant. The dichotomy of testing v. quality and balancing both the team’s and your focus still exists. Delivering value is both an imperative and a challenge. In this dynamic workshop, join agile coach Bob Galen to explore the tools, techniques, and mindset you need to bring to the table to successfully test in agile contexts. Bob examines risk-based testing, iterative test planning, exploratory testing, agile automation strategies, test metrics, and test artifacts. He explains the Agile Release Train in agile at-scale frameworks and the implications to your testing iterations and planning. Bob wraps up with a solid overview of user stories, acceptance test-driven development, and behavior-driven development. Gone are the days of one-size-fits-all testing techniques. Learn about the adaptive and context-based tools you can add to your agile testing toolbox so your team can deliver the goods.
