The Three Pillars Approach to Your Agile Test Strategy

Far too often, agile transformations focus just on development teams, agile frameworks, or technical practices as adoption strategies unfold. Often the testing activity and the testing teams are left behind in agile strategy development or worse yet, they are only along for the ride. That’s simply not an effective transformation strategy. Join experienced agile coach Bob Galen as he shares the Three Pillars Framework for establishing a balanced strategic plan to effectively implement agile quality and testing. The pillars focus on development and test automation, testing practices, and whole-team collaboration activities that will ensure you have a balanced approach to agile testing and quality. Specifically the framework focuses on effective tactics of risk-based testing, exploratory testing, paired collaboration around agile requirements, agile test design, and TDD-BDD-functional testing automation. Leave with the tools to immediately initiate or rebalance a much more effective agile testing strategy.
