Agile Testing

Transition sound traditional test practices into an Agile development environment.

GK# 2504

Course Overview

In this course, you will learn how an Agile testing approach enhances delivery speed and improves overall quality. Learning the goals of Agile will help you transition, implement, and monitor testing in an Agile environment and integrate traditional testing skills and knowledge into Agile development teams.

Building on traditional risk-based test practice, we are now challenged by incremental delivery. To address but not inhibit Agility, we examine concepts like pair testing and strengthening relationships in a team setting to build a sense of common purpose. Working in parallel with developers eliminates hand-offs and late stage testing, and enables incremental confirmed component delivery. This program builds on what we know, and adapts to what we need, which is Agile delivery. Agile testing opens new areas of opportunity to build strength in product quality, process improvement, and test confidence.

When implementing changes in methods and approaches, we may slide back into old test habits, or leave methods behind rather than transition from them. We may throw everything away and do a wholesale replacement without appreciating what really needs to change. Most testing practices work, but only within appropriate development contexts. This program will contrast traditional against Agile testing, highlighting what changes we must make to apply the best testing principles in the new role that we will play. Agile testing is not a separate service, but an integrated part of the development team.

The International Consortium for Agile has worked with experts around the world to develop an education roadmap of training and certification for all specialties involved in Agile development. This course has been approved and earns all students the ICAgile Certified Professional in Agile Testing designation upon completion of the course.
