Agile projects appear more often, this requires Agile testing. Polteq is known for its process aimed approach. This appears to be contradictory with Agile, but experience in and knowledge of structured testing is very useful in an Agile testing process.
With an Agile testing process you need to find the balance between experience and flexibility to properly meet the expectations of your clients. The Agile context you are working in, is company dependent. But we see important, recurring practices in Agile software development:
- Incremental and iterative process;
- Adjusting to change.
These practices are the basis for an Agile testing process. Through our wide experience in testing and specifically our experience with Agile projects, we can help you with all aspects of proper testing in your Agile development.
Do you need testing experts that participate in your development teams? Then Polteq is the place for you. All our test engineers are ISTQB certified and have profound knowledge of TMap®. This knowledge of structured methods is not only useful, but even essential for proper testing in Agile teams. Polteq has Agile testing experts to support the engineers when needed. We aim for removing boundaries between development and test, in order not to create a team within a team. Our main focus will be on cooperation and results.
Testing does not only change within the teams, but also test management needs to adjust. The test manager will have a different focus than in tradition development. Test strategy and test plans will need to be fit for the Agile way of working. You need to think about risks on different levels within the organization and a birds eye view on testing is required. Our years of experience in traditional projects combined with our vision on and knowledge of Agile will be an asset for your organization.
In addition to supplying people that help you with test engineering and test management, we can also help you with consultancy on Agile testing processes. Experienced consultants help you, eg. by using Test Improvement for Agile (TI4Agile®), with improving testing in Agile projects. This is not limited to advice on agile testing, but will also apply to other aspects of Agile development.
