Agile Testing Fundamentals

In 2011 CTG created the STBoX Agile flavour on top of the existing STBoX (Software Testing Based On eXperience). STBoX Agile method explains the role of a tester in an agile development process and provides a detailed view of the different activities within an agile process. During this three-day course the attendees will learn what agile is, how a tester acts in an agile process and about different approaches to do testing in an agile process.

STBoX Agile has been created based on our agile experiences at several customers and projects. Thanks to this knowledge we can conclude that there is no standard agile process. Therefore STBoX Agile is not a workflow driven method but an activity driven method. All possible activities within an agile process are listed and for each activity the role of a tester is mentioned.

Through the use of practical examples, exercises and role playing games the concepts of agile and STBoX Agile will become clear.
