Agile Testing: Budgeting, Estimation, Planning and #NoEstimates

QUEST

We're a broken record when it comes to software testing. As we've made clear time and time again, testing is undervalued in IT. It is one of the most important steps in the software development process, yet it's often a hurried step, in an effort to produce a final project. As Agile adoption continues to increase (which it will), it's even more important to emphasize the value of testing.

But, testing is routinely overlooked, or organizations don't understand how to prioritize testing within the frameworks in use, like Agile. This is what Tom Cagley, our VP of Consulting and Agile Practice Manager, spoke about at this year's QUEST conference: How to utilize Agile in testing environments. He discussed the difference between budgeting, planning and estimation as applied to testing in an Agile environment - and when they make sense, when they don't and in what combination for testing. He also explained the #NoEstimates movement and its role in Agile testing.

You can download his presentation, "Budgeting, Estimation, Planning and #NoEstimates - They ALL Make Sense for Agile Testing!," here. If you have any thoughts we'd love to here them; just leave a comment below or contact Tom directly.

Agile DC 2015

On October 26th, we had the pleasure of attending the Agile DC conference for the third year. Agile DC brings together an impressive community of Agile practitioners and thought leaders from around the region, for a full day of presentations and networking.

For those in attendance, we were the keynote sponsor, so you probably saw us up on stage prior to the keynote speaker, James Grenning. Following that, we were excited to have 2 speakers at the event, our CEO, Mike Harris, and our VP of Consulting, Tom Cagley.

Both of their presentations are now available for download:

  • What if you need to scale Agile but don’t fit the models? A case study.
  • Budgeting, Estimation, Planning, #NoEstimates, and the Agile Planning Onion – They ALL make sense!

As always, if you have any questions or need more information, just leave a comment below and we'll be sure to get back to you!

"It's frustrating that there are so many failed software projects when I know from personal experience that it's possible to do so much better - and we can help."
