Roles are blurred in agile projects, but it is not always clear where testers can help. Testers want to be involved early and by incorporating the testing mindset, we improve customer exploration of product needs. At the same time, agile test planning and delivery benefits from involvement in agile requirements analysis. Janet Gregory will lead this experiential workshop, in which participants examine a subset of agile analysis models in tandem with specifying acceptance criteria to verify and validate requirements. Participants experience how incorporating the tester mindset and using test techniques during requirements exploration accelerates test planning and specification, enhances product quality, and uncovers missing, conflicting, erroneous and unnecessary requirements. Learn how requirements exploration promotes early test specification and increases requirements and product quality.
