From a Traditional into an Agile Tester
a practical course in Agile transformation
Duration : 1 day
Many companies in the IT world today are changing from the traditional methods of developing software and products into Agile ones. Nevertheless, many times these companies choose to implement only part of those Agile practices, leaving the teams with multiple challenges in many areas. These challenges impact both development and testing teams alike, in their day to day work.
In the seminar, we shall discuss the challenges of moving into the Agile model from traditional models (Agile scrum will be used for that purpose), focusing on the testing new/renew processes and day to day activities.
We shall examine the changes need in order to do that transition, the new ways of working, and the routes to be taken to enable us to perform this change more effectively, smoothly, and suited to our company – increasing our added value as testers.
The workshop will be conducted in a discussion mode format, led by topics and exercises, presenting alternative ways of work improvement, using out of the box thinking.
Testers, testing team leaders and test managers, who are new to Agile and would like to better understand what it takes to make a transition from a traditional tester into an Agile tester, and which main transition factors they should be working on to make that change work.
The objectives of this seminar is to give the participants an overview of
- What is needed from us due to the change in development model?
- What will change in the day to day life of the tester – planning, test design, execution, reporting?
- How can we add value – as testers – in the new model?
- Which possible alternatives ways of working do we have, facing that change?
These questions and more are a part of the challenges we face in implementing Agile testing today.
Participants should have basic knowledge about testing life cycle, testing techniques and methods, test measurements and test automation.
