Testing in Scrum:
A Guide for Software Quality Assurance in the Agile World

Santa Barbara, CAMarch 27, 2014Agile software development promises higher


software quality, a shorter time to market, and improved focus on customer needs. Thus,
more and more software development projects are being carried out using agile methods
like Scrum.

However, switching to agile and using it effectively is not always easy. Software testing
and quality assurances are crucial to the success of introducing and using agile
methodology in the long-term.

This book discusses agile methodology from the perspective of software testing and
software quality assurance management. It shows how agile testing works, and details
situations in which traditional testing techniques are still necessary within the agile
approach. Software development managers, project managers, and quality assurance
managers will obtain tips and tricks on how to organize testing and assure quality to
realize the full potential of agile methodology. Professional certified testers and software
quality assurance experts will learn how to work successfully within agile software teams
and how best to integrate their expertise.

Topics include:
- Agile vs. traditional approaches
- Test planning in agile projects
- Unit tests and test first approach
- Integration testing and continuous integration
- System testing and test nonstop
- Agile quality management and quality assurance

Also included are six case studies from the manufacturing, online-trade, and software
industry as well as test exercises for self-assessment.
This book covers the new ISTQB "Foundation Level Extension Syllabus Agile Tester" and
is a relevant resource for all students and trainees worldwide who plan to undertake this
ISTQB certification.
