Workshop: Essential Patterns of Mature Agile Testers

Testing in agile teams is still one of the great mysteries of the agile world. In many organizations, testers are sort of marginalized or the testing is relegated to the developers. In others, the testers are active, but rarely understand or reach the full breadth and depth of their role.

In this workshop, we’re going to explore the practices and mindset of “fully empowered” agile testers on high-performance agile teams. Bob Galen and Shaun Bradshaw have been coaching agile teams for over 15 years, and they’ve see it all – dysfunction to underperformance to high-performance. They’ll share with you real world tactics that will help you guide your team towards higher performance.

For example, we’ll explore defect management, test planning, documentation, test development & execution in agile contexts. We’ll also look at different testing strategies covering risk-based, automated, exploratory, and other manual testing practices. But beyond all of that, Bob will leave you fully armed with an agile testing mindset that will focus on whole team collaboration, respect, and results.
