Many teams have tried to implement agile software development practices and failed. When you read about transitioning to agile development, it sounds so easy. Why don’t all of them succeed? Iterations turn into mini-waterfalls, stories are never quite “done”, and testers worry that they’re losing control or being set up to fail. Customers keep changing their minds and complaining that their requirements weren’t met. Obviously, some teams succeed with testing on agile projects, and others don’t. What do they do differently?
Janet Gregory shares some of the lessons she has learned that help agile teams be successful. She talks about what to avoid, what practices are critical, and gives some basic steps that can make the difference between success and failure. One example of a critical practice is the idea of using feature acceptance tests in addition to story acceptance tests to keep the big picture in mind.
