||Making Agile Testing Work with two case studies
All implementations of test organizations and methods used in the industry are unique, this is so since every company, product and organization have different needs.
This presentation shows two different implemetations from two companies in Sweden.
- The first Case study (International travel Agency) presents the transformation from a V-model development method, with its traditional test levels to a currently well working Agile development method with test in different levels with much better results in the delivered quality.
- The second Case study (Swedish newspaper) had a fully Agile approach completely without testing, the presentation will show how testing was introduced with the support of the developers and all the actions taken to keep the developers happy during the transition.

At times this means taking the difficult decisions to move away from what you have done for years and change to more modern and potentially more efficient methods such as Agile and in particular Scrum (well nearly).
In an organisation of this size, changing all your lines of business to an agile world is challenging, particularly when you happen to be number 2 in the fortune 500, but we made the decision to do it. Its a work in progress, but here is our story to date
