Simplicity: The Path to Achieving Agile Testing Efficiency

with Paul Herzog, SPR Consulting

About the Topic

The pace of an Agile project creates demands efficiency in all testing techniques and processes. Traditional approaches run counter to this efficiency and must be changed during the Agile transition. Join Paul as he applies the Agile Manifesto Principle #10: “Simplicity – the art of maximizing the amount of work not done – is essential” to distinguish what past testing practices work and don’t work to clean out the clutter of the non-working. He will identify common process traps when adopting Agile methodologies, suggest priorities that are most important to Agile testing, and present ways to remove testing inefficiencies. Determine how to include process evaluation in regular Sprint Retrospectives or other checkpoints and implement continuous improvement focused on simplicity. Experience a successful transition to Agile with Paul!

Key Learning Objectives
  • Identify what has to be changed and change it before the Agile transition
  • Get rid of extraneous information that clutters the project and reduces efficiency
  • Motivate your team for continuous improvement and eliminate "that how we have always done it" syndrome
