Even though it is widely known that Agile is "nothing new" there still seem to be a lot of misconceptions and misgivings around it. Early in 2011, Seek began the transition from a Waterfall development environment to Agile. Throughout this process we have challenged, and been challenged by some of these fallacies and by working closely with members from all corners of the business is working towards defining what testing is at an "Agile" Seek.
It's far too easy to get stuck in the "This is the way it's always been done" mentality, not accepting any change, and not taking any risks until you have all the answers. By taking you through an end to end process from "The Wall" to Production, I would like to address the management of changing the Test Strategy and the roles & responsibilities in an Agile environment, encouraging people to try new ways of doing things that may or may not be better, evolving an approach to testing that maximises coverage, minimises risk and reduces any duplication of effort while maintaining, and measuring, a high level of Quality.
