  • How to fit testing activities into an agile cycle
  • Who is responsible for completing various testing activities, and when
  • How to get testers engaged with the rest of the agile development team
  • How to get everyone on a delivery team engaged in continuous testing
  • Ways to plan testing activities using visual models
  • How testing can “keep up” with short iterations or even continuous delivery
  • How to evaluate testing effectiveness and continually improve
  • How to get traction on test automation

This book is a must for testers, software delivery team members, product team members, business stakeholders, managers, and executives.

The authors’ first two books, Agile Testing and More Agile Testing, give detailed examples of testing challenges faced by real agile teams and describe how they were solved. This condensed book provides an overview of the agile testing practices that have proven useful in many contexts.
