Full Course Outline 

In the Agile Manifesto the words ‘test’ and ‘quality’ are seen 0 times, in the scrum guide ‘test’ is seen 4 times and ‘quality’ 3 times.

None of the times talks of HOW to get it done.

But we know that as soon as we have multiple teams ‘test’ and ‘quality’ are crucial for the released software to be good. It is enough for ONE team to deliver bad software and the whole product is bad.

This full-day course goes through the needs an organization with more than 2 teams has when it comes to testing and QA.

What documents have to be in place, how to make different teams align for the same quality level, how to get good, structured and active testers in the teams and how to develop test and quality over time.

This Course walks through most of the areas that have to be in place to have a proper Agile quality implementation in place, that really works and is efficient.
