"If a team believes they are agile, but nothing has changed about the way they test, then there is still much to learn" (Karen Greaves & Samantha Laing)

This quote reveals a widespread problem: Many teams use agile procedural models to develop their software, but in the end, the test process hardly distinguishes itself from traditional procedures. However, in agile software development, testing should be changed from the ground up: The team should be responsible for the quality in order to work together to develop a product that the customer will love.


The goal of this training is to create a common understanding of agile testing – an agile “testing mindset.” In addition, cross-team problems and challenges for agile testing will be identified and solutions developed jointly to confront these.

Are you and your team ready for the next stage of the agile (test) mindset? Then you must attend this training!

Target group

  • Suitable for teams and individuals
  • Recommended: for all team members/roles in the agile software process


Performance-oriented software development should be aimed especially at developing a product that users will love and from which the participants will profit. For this, every person participating in the software development process should contribute and feel responsible.

In order to achieve this goal, it is crucial not to regard software testing in isolation. It’s a part of the software development process for which not only the software testers are responsible.

This training will communicate 5 key principles that explain why agile testing distinguishes itself clearly from traditional testing. The goal of the training is to understand these principles and develop an agile test mentality.

Training structure:

  1. Explanation of the term quality
  2. The 5 values of agile testing
  3. Testing is driven by risks
  4. Agile test strategy
  5. Test automation
  6. Scrum ceremonies
