More and more organizations are switching from the traditional waterfall-model to agile development methods (XP, RUP, DSDM, Scrum, etc.), often successfully. Testers are expected to test their knowledge and skills to apply in an agile environment. In addition, they get to deal with typical agile practices such as iterative development, time boxing, stand-up meetings, continuous integration, test driven development and early validation.
But what does this mean for the test approach? To what extent their practices and knowledge (TMap, ISTQB) still apply? In practice, this knowledge is just a very good basis. But how do you apply these test methods and techniques in an agile environment? That translation requires a clear insight into the background and objectives of agile development.
