Testing Agility in the World of Scrum

Presented by: Giovanni Diviacchi


In the new reality of Agile software development, a scrum team's developers take ownership of the testing process of their working software.  In the world of business rules, this means that the business knowledge of your business stakeholders and possibly even of your Product Owner may get lost in the type of data that is generated for the automated tests, as the scrum team developers may not have the business knowledge necessary to create the variety of data that reflects what may happen in production.  Today's presentation is a case study of how one agile project used the business knowledge of its Product Owner to develop a data generation tool that ensured that the test data used in the automated tests reflects the variety and scope of real world data that would pass through the business rules in production.

Learning Objectives:

  • Agile Analysis
  • Designing the Adaptable Business
  • The Evolving Analysis and Design Landscape
