Back in 2009, I wrote, "Integrating testing best practices into Agile methodologies will be a key success factor for many test teams in the 2010s. The lesson of the 2000s is that doing so poses a number of challenges."
With the advent of the ISTQB Agile Test Foundation syllabus, and the courses and books supporting it, I think the path for integrating testing best practices into Agile is well-defined. However, as I continue to work with clients around the world, I continue to see challenges.
We've certainly made progress, but have we made enough progress? If you're testing in Agile projects, what is in the way of your testing? Are you feeling about as Agile as the folks in this meeting? Or maybe you're feeling as Agile as this little fellow jumping the bar, but someone keeps raising the bar on you?
What do you think? What remains your biggest challenge to integrating testing best practices into Agile?
