Overview

In an IT world in which there are differently sized projects, with different applications, differently skilled practitioners, and on-site, off-site, and off-shored development teams, it is impossible for there to be a one-size-fits-all agile development and testing approach. This book provides practical guidance for professionals, practitioners, and researchers faced with creating and rolling out their own agile testing processes. In addition to descriptions of the prominent agile methods, the book provides twenty real-world case studies of practitioners using agile methods and draws upon their experiences to propose your own agile method; whether yours is a small, medium, large, off-site, or even off-shore project, this book provides personalized guidance on the agile best practices from which to choose to create your own effective and efficient agile method.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The author has provided very helpful and hands-on materials to individuals and managers who are moving from the waterfall (phased) method of software testing. I found the style very reader-friendly, with "suggestions on how to read this book," and the ability to jump to the section that will be most helpful to the reader. This volume will be a valuable addition to your library."
