Agility and Risk : Challenges for your Agile QA Strategy
Speaker: David Evans, Agile Testing Coach, ThinkAlike Consulting
A recent report from Forrester states that agile methods have now become mainstream in the market, with over a third of all companies describing their development as Agile. But for those who have switched to Agile methods and for those still in the early stages of adoption there are still some important questions: What is the relationship between risk mitigation, quality and agility? How can we assure the quality of our agile projects? Will our traditional testing department cope with the transition? What are the most important principles of quality management in an agile context? I explore these and other questions in this tour through the key challenges for creating an agile quality strategy.
