Acceptance Testing in Agile – what does it mean to you?

Reading Time: 1 minute

With sequential lifecycles like the V-model, the main interpretation of ‘Acceptance’ is usually User Acceptance Testing. In the more iterative/incremental approach of Agile, the word ‘acceptance’ has a different meaning. It typically relates to customer or user story based testing. However, many agile teams struggle to ensure they have an effective test strategy because of a lack of clarity in the scope of acceptance testing. This can lead to significant product risks being omitted in testing. This presentation will clarify the many forms of Acceptance testing and the roles involved. It will provide key lessons learnt and practical advice to help ensure your approach is as effective as possible in your context.
