scrumtestspe The Scrum Test Specialist 7 hours This course is designed for testers, from a traditional test background, who are seeking to find their place in an Agile development environment. There is no specific Tester role in Scrum - there is just the Team. The Team collectively is responsible for the quality of the delivery, including testing, and so the ‘traditional’ Tester role is redundant. However, this course demonstrates how a Team member specialising in testing can add a great deal of value in the Scrum development process. Overview of Agile The Agile manifesto and principles Benefits of Agile Scrum overview and context Scrum Development Process Scrum components – 4 ceremonies, 4 artefacts, 3 roles The Scrum Process Comparison of V-Model to Agile Approach to Software Testing Traditional requirements v User Stories Valuing working software over documentation – what test documentation is needed? Conveyor belt v Collaboration – working in one Team The Contribution of the ‘Test Perspective’ to: The Sprint Review The Sprint Retrospective Backlog grooming and estimation The Test Specialist’s Tool Bag Exploratory testing Automated testing
