Man handcuffed to his keyboard - Agile TesterYou! Might Be an Agile Tester…

Here’s my list of 12 reasons you migh be an Agile Tester:

  • If you work in close proximity to Developers, you might be an Agile Tester.
  • If you are test-infected.
  • If you think automated testing is key in software development.
  • If you invite yourself to meetings that you weren’t invited to by someone else.
  • If you are learning new skills and practicing continuous improvement along with your team.
  • If you keep your team focused on delivering core functionality that has the highest business value.
  • If you stay in touch with the big picture.
  • If you and the Product Owner develop Acceptance Criteria for User Stories together.
  • If you push automated tests to the lowest possible level to encourage fast feedback.
  • If you are part of the “Power of Three” in functionality discussions.
  • If you are a skilled exploratory tester discovering issues that could not be detected by automated tests.
  • If you define non-functional requirements as User Stories, you might be an Agile Tester.
