  1. 1. Presented by: Lesley Wallace

  3. 3. From “101 Inspiring Quotes about Agile” - Front Row Agile
  4. 4. Lesley’s Q&A for you • How many are developing software using Scrum? • How much testing automation is being used? • Do you find it difficult to test within a Sprint? Automation is the best way to solve this!
  5. 5. And More…
  6. 6. Who is responsible for Quality? A) QA Team Member B) Developers C) Business Analysts D) Product Owner E) All of the above “Everyone in the team is responsible for building in quality. . . ANYONE can be a tester, and everyone should create tests.“ –Lesley Wallace
  7. 7. Challenge: So how do we manually test within a two week Sprint? Won’t it just wind up mini-waterfall? Mini-waterfall Scrummerfall Wagile BAD! Not Agile! Totally UNFAIR!
  8. 8. How are your User Stories broken down? How many stories are you accepting into a sprint? Do they take more than 2 days to code? Evaluate Your Stories
  9. 9. How do you write your Acceptance Criteria (AC) or Conditions of Satisfaction for a story? Is whoever’s testing involved in their creation? AC as the “expected result” of tests Acceptance Criteria: A Better Way to Define Testing Needs
  10. 10. Team decides on scope Tester only focuses on the story (no exploring!) Limits Documentation AC as the “expected result”
  11. 11. Challenge: But what about Regression? It’s not possible within a Sprint! Add a Hardening Sprint! Are you comfortable that the application will work when all stories are pushed to production? Do you have a bit more time before a release is expected?
  12. 12. Challenge: But we don’t have time for this “Hardening Sprint” business! Modified Regression at the last Sprint Where do you experience the most traffic? What are the most critical features to keep your business in business?
  13. 13. Manual testing within a sprint is hard, but not impossible. Final Thoughts… • Decrease scope of each story • Commit to testing only within scope • Everyone should be involved in testing Add automation whenever you can. It helps. And there are tools out there for all needs & budgets, so give one a try!
