The anonymised slides from a presentation that is so old that although I had experience of testing in agile environments at the time it was written, I, my then-client and the wider testing community were wrestling with how and whether there could be a long term role for professional specialist testers within multi-disciplinary agile teams in which blurred lines of responsibility are an intentional feature. These slides earn their place on this page because:
1) Some people are still in that place or are themselves convinced of the need but require help in making the case within their current environment.
2) It is interesting to look back and compare/contrast the testing community's relatively early thinking with the contemporary views that prevail today.
3) The narrative of this presentation potentially plays into the very modern discussions around the need to scale the supply of SDITs (Software Developers In Test).
