Simplicity: The Path to Achieving Agile Testing Efficiency
August 17, 2016 12:00 – 1:00 PM
About the Topic
The pace of an Agile project creates demands efficiency in all testing techniques and processes. Traditional approaches run counter to this efficiency and must be changed during the Agile transition. Join Paul as he applies Agile Manifesto Principle #10: “Simplicity – the art of maximizing the amount of work not done – is essential” to distinguish what past testing practices work and don’t work to clean out the clutter of the non-working. He will identify common process traps when adopting Agile methodologies, suggest priorities that are most important to Agile testing, and present ways to remove testing inefficiencies. Determine how to include process evaluation in regular Sprint Retrospectives or other checkpoints and implement continuous improvement focused on simplicity. Experience a successful transition to Agile with Paul!
