Technical excellence, customer satisfaction, and a focus on working software are key components of the Agile manifesto. In order to realize the full benefits of Agile development, teams must implement strong testing and technical practices. This training course demonstrates testing strategies and tactics that ensure high and sustainable quality in an Agile environment.

You Will Learn How To

  • Select efficient Agile testing practices for a project to ensure continuous feedback

Important Course Information

Requirements:

  • Prior to attending this course, attendees should have attended:
  • Work experience in software development and testing

Recommended Experience:

  • Any work experience as any of the following: Agile Testers, Agile Developers, Product Owners, Analysts and Test Managers, QA Managers, and those whose role is to ensure that Agile teams deliver high customer satisfaction at an optimized cost.
  • Taking Course 1820, Agile Test Automation, is highly recommended, either before or after this course, to complete the ICAgile certification pathway for Agile Testing.

Course Materials:
