Testing Moves the Project Forward
On traditional projects, testing is usually treated as a quality gate, and the QA/Test group often serves as the quality gatekeeper. It’s considered the responsibility of testing to prevent bad software from going out to the field. The result of this approach is long, drawn out bug scrub meetings in which we argue about the priority of the bugs found in test and whether or not they are sufficiently important and/or severe to delay a release.
On Agile teams, we build the product well from the beginning, using testing to provide feedback on an ongoing basis about how well the emerging product is meeting the business needs. This sounds like a small shift, but it has profound implications.
The adversarial relationship that some organizations foster between testers and developers must be replaced with a spirit of collaboration. It’s a completely different mindset.
