Role Of Testing In Software Development

Role Of Testing in Agile


The role of QA in agile goes beyond traditional concepts of testing. Instead, testers are considered an integral part of the development team. Testers work with all team members to improve and build quality into software as early as possible. This enhanced role requires that QA members improve their skills in the following areas:

  • Communication. Testers need to communicate more in agile because they have to proactively engage everyone who can help add value to the process and product.
  • Technical. Continuous attention to technical excellence and good design is a fundamental principal of Agile.
  • Automation. Requires programming skills to turn user stories into automated test scripts.

So testers need to embrace ambiguity in their role and take on more and greater opportunities and responsibilities. Zephyr Enterprise Edition is a test management solution that helps QA expand what they do and how they do it.
