Testing is central to the success of agile development, but key aspects of the tester's role remain ambiguous or misunderstood. Lisa Crispin and Janet Gregory pioneered the agile testing discipline with their first book, Agile Testing.

Now, they reflect on all that's been learned in five years since it was published, addressing crucial additional issues and sharing newly evolved best practices for successfully integrating testing throughout your agile project. In the new book More Agile Testing, two world-renowned agile test experts ask tough questions about agile testing - and provide definitive answers based on the experiences of successful agile teams worldwide. 

This course is based on the two books and is packed with examples from real agile teams, including first-hand experiences. The course offers important new insights into questions such as:

  • What is the true role of a tester?
  • Do agile teams actually need members with QA backgrounds?
  • What does it really mean to be an agile tester?
  • How do we successfully implement and manage a testing program in an agile setting?

Whatever your role in creating, running, or responding to agile tests, this course bring you the world's best wisdom - and show you how to take advantage of it.

The course is deeply experiential, immersing the participants in hands-on coaching exercises and using that experience to apply and reinforce the theory. It will prepare participants to effectively undertake testing activities in an agile team.
