Workshop: ACCelerate Your Agile Testing

One of the most pervasive questions I’m asked by people testing within an agile environment is how to perform test planning and execute on that plan successfully when you’ve only got two weeks for a sprint – and you’re usually asked to start before specifications and other work is solidified – and things change midway through. This session explores one of the most effective tools I’ve built to get a test team started working at the beginning of a sprint, monitor their progress with the least amount of overhead possible, and rapidly respond to changes when (not if) they happen.

We’ll be conducting a working session using the ACCelerated Test Planning method I developed by combining the Ten-Minute Test Plan, Session Based Testing, and Automated Regression Testing. Bring a laptop and a mobile smart phone or tablet to fully participate.

Workshop Takeaways:

  • How to effectively pull useful testing requirements and priorities in a minimal amount of time without much pain and suffering.
  • How to come up with a useful test plan/strategy within the space of hours.
  • How to manage and report on testing without formalized test cases.
  • How to quickly decide which test learnings are good candidates for automation.
  • How to do all of this using open source tools available to you RIGHT NOW!!!!

Workshop Requirements:


Please bring your laptop to this session.
