Testing in an Agile Environment

Ask us a question

Whilst there are many ways to do testing technically on a project, Testing in an Agile Environment focuses on the more social side of testing – who testers need to interact with and when, where they are needed in the agile project lifecycle and how their remit extends beyond simple quality control. The course is ideal for those new to testing in an Agile environment, whether they are in the QA role or if they work with Agile teams.

Approach

The course is based around a non-technology based process simulation which drives the attendees to ask questions about where quality starts, who is responsible for it and how it can be continually improved. It leaves everyone with an excellent understanding of why testing is different in an Agile environment to a traditional environment, what’s expected, who’s responsible for what and how it needn’t be hard to get right.
