As we emerge from the greatest recession of our lifetimes, organizations are striving to involve their stakeholders, and apply modern, agile engineering practices when developing software. Indeed, in many organizations, the questions have shifted from Why Agile to How and How Fast can software be produced. Testing is central to the success or failure of any organization adopting the Agile Consensus. A modern testing approach can be a great enabler of value flow, transparency and the reduction of waste. An outmoded testing approach can be a huge impediment and source of unending conflict. As testers, it’s important that we be on the right side of the consensus and be the enablers. The alternative is untenable. In this session, we will explore fundamental principles of agile project delivery and discuss the impact on the QA lifecycle.
