Agile has exploded onto our screens but there is often turmoil around what “Agile Development” means. This webinar will offer a review and an update of the Agile Testing Quadrants as seen through the lens of Rapid Software Testing—an agile (but not necessarily Agile) approach. Michael will show how Agile development can—and should—be infused with testing that helps to identify and defend the value of the product while reducing the costs of development.
As enterprises scale up their Agile adoption, the Agile feature teams must work in concert with many other teams! Recognize the different teams that make up the Agile enterprise, and their relationships to each other. Understand the role of the tester in each of these teams.
With so much interest in Agile, a test manager might ponder as to the place of Test Management. Test Managers want to know what happens to their role when teams are self-empowered and what a test management process and test strategy looks like in an agile context. This video will discuss some of these key issues.

In traditional testing a tester distinguishes various phases. To be able to effectively test in Agile projects the test activities should not be phased but be properly integrated in an Agile approach.
This eBook starts with a vision on Agile testing and, based on that, describes how to effectively integrate test activities in the Scrum approach.

Mary Thorn and Bob Galen are working on a new agile testing book to be published in Q4 2014 – Q1 2015. It will focus on a framework for guiding organizational and
team transformation from more traditional quality and testing strategies to those more conducive to the agile methodologies. They have found that this transition to be:
1. Difficult and challenging under the best of conditions
2. Often it has a development or technical-centric quality and testing is “left behind”
3. Often the quality and testing folks don’t understand how to drive the strategic change;
4. And most often, there is an imbalance in the applied practices that inhibits true agile performance and delivery.
They are including the Three Pillars Introduction chapter and Three Pillars Applied chapter in this eBook as a means of introducing you to the pillars and giving you sufficient ideas to start changing your agile strategies. It will immediately change the way you look at quality and testing tactics and strategies when you’re trying to “go Agile”.
