Planning the Perfect UAT Process
The earlier a defect is discovered, the less expensive it is to address it and remove it - and this includes UAT as well. Traditionally, in waterfall processes, UAT doesn’t occur until later in the product lifecycle closer to the delivery date, and this is just asking for trouble. The longer you wait, the higher the risk of including defects in release and the more costly they become to fix.
UAT needs to take place early on in the product lifecycle and it needs to happen often. This process doesn't need to be difficult or complex and, by conducting UAT every two sprints, tight feedback loops are created and make it much easier to adapt your testing schedule and efforts.
