Learn How to Transition Towards Better Agile Testing
Many organizations are, to a certain extent, working agile or are transitioning to agile. To obtain success, testing needs to change along with the development process. TI4Agile focuses on test processes, as well as team and people aspects, and the embedding of testing in the organization. Because in agile everyone works closely together, the approach addresses more than just testing, for instance it also involves development, business analysis, and project management. Topics that are covered include test automation, user stories, continuous integration, the testing craft, and test driven development.

This course will provide you with improvement suggestions on testing and other parts of the development and business processes. Explore the key areas and learn how to use these for adequate improvements in your organization. Take back a step-by-step roadmap for better testing in agile environments from this interactive course. TI4Agile uses Scrum practices to incorporate the improvements into your business as usual—this results in getting the buy-in you need and gaining immediate benefits from the approach

The Approach
In order to improve successfully, you need to know the current status and what to do to reach your goals. By questioning, observing, and participating in the teams, you will find out what and how to improve in your organization. The TI4Agile model will help you to assess and improve in a structured way. Use the key areas and checkpoints to your benefit and start to improve the way your development teams deliver value.

Who Should Attend
This course equips test managers, QA managers, test team leads, software managers, test consultants, scrum masters, product owners, and IT improvement specialists with the tools and skills they need to plan for and conduct a structured assessment and improvement initiative.

During the training, all aspects of the Test Improvement process will be practiced. Delegates will receive a description of all TI4Agile key areas, checkpoints and underlying details.
