Test Process Improvement in Agile

Current Test Process Improvement (TPI) models have proven to be a mismatch when used to assess testing in an agile context, since it is significantly more difficult to describe how to become more flexible than it is to describe how to become more structured. So what’s missing in the current models and how can we help organizations improve their testing in an agile environment? Jeroen Mengerink introduces a systematic model to improve the testing in agile software development. The Agile Manifesto, the SCRUM process, and the field experience of numerous testers form the basis for this new model. Jeroen describes new key areas to consider and describes good practices that help mature the agile process. Learn how to improve your testing by using a combination of existing and new key process areas. Additionally, discover a set of practices that can add value to your testing immediately.
