This five-hour course is for anyone wanting to build quality into their software product. You’ll learn the foundation principles, concepts and practices for successful testing in agile teams. It’s based on our best-selling books, Agile Testing: A Practical Guide for Testers and Agile Teams, and More Agile Testing: Learning Journeys for the Whole Team. In the course, we spend 5-10 minutes explaining some agile testing concept, technique or practice, then give you an exercise to help you practice it yourself. Then we discuss and show you how we would approach the exercise. Janet and I share our personal experiences and give lots of examples to hep you learn.

The Whole Team Approach to Agile Testing: Three-day Course

Are you a tester wondering what the heck you should be doing now that you’re suddenly on an agile team? Are you a manager of a new agile team puzzled at why the QA group refuses to cooperate with you? Are you an agile developer trying to figure out how to deliver the best possible software? If so, you might be interested in the three-day agile testing course that Janet Gregory and I developed. Please see Janet Gregory’s course information page for more information. This course is offered in most parts of the planet. You can schedule a private course for your own team or company.

Here’s a course description:

Over three days, we put theory into action through a variety of exercises. This course teaches testers how to fit into agile projects, contribute to the whole team and overcome common cultural and logistical obstacles in transitioning to an agile development process. It explains the values and principles that help testers adopt an agile testing mindset and how to accomplish traditional testing processes, such as defect tracking, metrics, audits, and conforming to quality models. Students will learn how to complete testing activities in short iterations, and how testers contribute on a daily basis during each iteration and release cycle. Through interactive exercises and group discussions, participants will discover good strategies for driving development with both executable and manual tests. The course is filled with real-life examples of the many ways agile testers add value.

Coaching

I’m available for short-term consulting and coaching. I work side-by-side with your teams to help them identify the improvements and changes they need, and help them implement those changes. This might be doable in one short-term engagement, or a few days every few weeks as needed.

Training

I do tutorials anywhere from one to three days subjects such as:

  • Helping traditional testers make the transition to agile teams
  • Getting traction on agile test automation
  • Using the agile testing quadrants to cover your testing needs
  • Driving development using business-facing tests
  • Customized tutorials to fit your own needs
