A Tester’s Survival Guide for Agile Transition
Agile transformation is challenging, especially for testers who are accustomed to working in a silo. As a lone tester on a team, it’s difficult to find the time to learn new methodologies and adapt to be able to incorporate them as part of your process.
While it’s apparent that an agile approach can bring forth several benefits such as the faster delivery of new features, it’s not always obvious what a tester should do to be a part of this change.
Although there’s literature covering the tester’s role in an agile environment, this talk will move beyond the theory and provide a journey of a tester’s experience in making this transformation.
Make no mistake… transitioning to agile is not an easy feat, so this talk will not only cover my personal successes but will also highlight my failures and critical lessons learned.
