More Agile Testing – The Book


Testing is central to the success of agile development, but key aspects of the tester’s role remain ambiguous or misunderstood. In More Agile Testing, two world-renowned agile test experts ask tough questions about agile testing – and provide definitive answers based on the experiences of successful agile teams worldwide.

Lisa Crispin and Janet Gregory pioneered the agile testing discipline with their first book, Agile Testing. Now, they reflect on all that’s been learned in five years since it was published, addressing crucial additional issues and sharing newly evolved best practices for successfully integrating testing throughout your agile project.

Packed with new examples from real agile teams, including first-hand experiences from more than 40 expert practitioners, More Agile Testing offers important new insights into questions such as:

  • What is the true role of a tester?
  • Do agile teams actually need members with QA backgrounds?
  • What does it really mean to be an agile tester?
  • How do we successfully implement and manage a testing program in an agile setting?

Whatever your role in creating, running, or responding to agile tests, Crispin and Gregory bring together the world’s best wisdom – and show you how to take advantage of it.
