Results of an Agile Approach - Agile Testing Agile Testing

Having applied the process for a number of years, there has been a lot of opportunityto work out what works well and what doesn’t work so well. Let me share some ofthe results with you:

  • We’ve used this process on projects that included multiple vendors working in multiple geographies and the process allowed the necessary collaborations to take place in a predictable and efficient way.
  • Using design to guide the development teams has improved the usage of implementation technologies and has allowed specialist implementation teams(e.g., Portal, BPEL, integration connectors) to work effectively together as a team.
  • The consistent view of the design across multiple technologies from different suppliers makes the overall solution easier to understand.
  • The process has made it possible for teams to leverage design parts built by previous teams to produce new solutions.
  • Quality issues are caught early by our projects due the fact that QA testing kicks in from the very first iteration.
  • Our early showcases to the end users prove very effective at both getting useful feedback and making end users feel an integral part of the process.
  • Doing proper progress tracking based on plans that are well thought out to start with reduces the amount of shortcuts required later.
  • Having a continuous build and test in place is very important for developer productivity.
  • Missing or bad design puts pressure on the development team, who end up releasing bad-quality code, which then puts further pressure on the testers.
  • Tracking change is crucial to ensuring the team’s ability to execute the plans. If changes are “slipped in” without planning updates, then the plans become unachievable and meaningless

  • Velocity and other progress tracking mechanisms allow formature conversations with customers and other suppliers. It helps to be able to discuss progress in black-and-white terms.
