    One of the findings from the recent Sauce Labs Survey of Testers was that many test teams do not practise full agile testing.

    The survey suggested that instead these teams are practising “Fast Waterfall” instead.

    The arguement is based on the five best practises for Agile:

    1. Development and QA work as partners to deliver applications
    2. Development and QA teams communicate in real-time
    3. Bugs are fixed immediately
    4. Testing is highly automated
    5. Development and testing is highly iterative

    The survey suggests that only about 1 in 5 test teams are actually practising Agile fully.

    What do you think? Are they right to label those are don’t meat the five best Practises as practising “fast Waterfall”?

    Or is this just a sign of how slow it can be to move to Agile completely?
