Listen, interview and find out what works.Not everything is broken.
Find the pockets of success and replicate.
What we’ve learned is that an Ag Rollout is itself at iterative and incremental process.
This means that the testers should participate in all delivery-team planning, ceremonies, and work that is being performed by the team.Backlog grooming, iteration planning, delivering software, attendance at the standup, demos & reviews, and retrospectives should all include the QA members.In an Agile model, the testers have equal footing with the rest of the delivery team and are expected to help plan, help get upcoming stories ready for future iterations, task out stories, and to fully participate in the collaborative commitment of the delivery team.
What this really looks like is not so much steps as overlapping waves.One of the early decisions you make is about how far you want to go and how fast.how far – not all the way agile? a program?how fast – how much learning? how much appetite for change?
Create a sense of team identity by defining teams.
Compliancy is not allowed – this approach will allow you to say on the green curveIt is the path toward a maneuverable workforce –with alignment and initiative
