Is Agile the Death of Testing? An agile transformation journey will tell.
This is the true story of a software development house that was following an agile approach but wanted to level up their maturity. The initial consideration was that standardized methods should be adopted and ways to scale should be set in practice.
At the end of this journey, the organization ended up not in a that different state from the initial. However, their maturity level when it comes to agile mindset had increased significantly based on the lessons learnt through this journey.
This presentation will show what was realized during this journey and how to go to the next level of agile approach, regardless of methods and tools. It will also provide a definite answer to the question: Is Agile the death of Testing or not?
