Testing SAFely – Finding your way in the Scaled Agile Framework

W2     Start Time : 10:30     End Time : 11:00

Being a tester or test manager in a scaled agile framework can sometimes be a bit like being lost in the jungle; there are many strange animals there (new agile roles), and you have to learn to behave differently compared to the city in order to survive (ceremonies, life cycle). But after a while you will get new skills and maybe even changes in your mindset, you may find that the jungle isn’t that bad after all.

You might not turn out to be Tarzan or Mowgli – but you find ways to live and thrive in the new environment.

Gitte Ottosen took the journey to the wild, being a test manager and quality coach, trying to find her way in the jungle called SAFe. based on her experience from several agile release trains, she will give you her view on some of the challenges and ways of solving them.

Key Takeaways:

  1. What to test – Safe says built in quality, what test does that result in?
  2. Where to test – Team Vs. Train
  3. Who drives test – The test manager as a coach
