Bristol Meetup with BCS and David Evans

In conjunction with the Bristol branch of the BCS.

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.


David Evans is an independent agile consultant, coach and trainer with over 22 years of IT experience. A thought-leader in the field of agile testing, he has trained and consulted on this topic for clients in the UK, Ireland, Sweden, Germany, Australia, Israel, South Africa and Singapore. A regular speaker at events and conferences across Europe, David has also had several papers published in international IT journals. He currently lives and works in the UK, where he runs his own company ThinkAlike Consulting.

    In spite of having the event interrupted by a fire alarm right at the start of the talk, I was pleased that everyone returned!
    It was great to see a 'full house' and I appreciate the nice feedback I've had on the talk.

    I found the David Evans presentation on Agile testing very interesting and there were quite a few good questions asked

    I was a very interesting speech. The part of the pyramid was the one I most liked.

    The presentation was abridged due to circumstances outside of our control (Firealarms) which resulted in some more involved topics being covered quite likely. However, questions were fielded well and the topic was well presented and conveyed.
