Is Your Agile Not Feeling Very Agile?

Many of our clients are using Agile methods to develop software. However, even now, almost 20 years after the Agile Manifesto was signed, some people are still struggling with fitting software testing best practices into their Agile development teams. Does this sound familiar? If so, don't despair. We have worked with clients' testers and test teams from the early days of Agile, helping them achieve effective and efficient testing within Agile development processes, including XP, Scrum, Kanban, Continuous Delivery, and Continuous Deployment. RBCS President Rex Black led the effort to write the highly successful ISTQB syllabus, the Foundation Level Agile Tester, and co-wrote a book on the topic, so you can be confident that we can help you put into action techniques and concepts that are well-proven and widely accepted.

Fully Leveraging Agile Test Automation

Archimedes once wrote, “Give me a place to stand, and a lever long enough, and I will move the world.” In Agile, the place to stand is testing, and the lever is test automation. Are you using all the leverage that lever gives you? Most organizations are missing some tricks, and not getting the full value of test automation. In this recorded webinar, I will survey all the different ways you can—and should—take advantage of test automation as an Agile tester. The best news: Many of these forms of automation involve tools that won’t cost you a dime! Spend some time learning about some high-ROI, proven best practices to reduce failure costs and increase quality.

The Down Part of “Shift Left and Down"

Shifting defect discovery to earlier activities (shift left) reduces rework and improves quality deliveries to customers. A lot of attention is paid to this part of “Shift Left and Down”, but how do we do the shift down? Root Cause Analysis (RCA) is the answer. A variety of techniques can be used with varying formalities, cost, and results; ranging from informal, 5-why, Ishikawa/fishbone to Cause-Effect. Which technique is the right one to use, and when should it be applied? Is your organization ready for RCA? What do you do with the results? In this recorded webinar, Rex Black discusses these questions and others with Ed Weller, who draws on 20 years of experience using RCA and onsite training across a wide range of businesses.
