7 hours (usually 1 day including breaks)

Overview Overview

This course is designed for testers, from a traditional test background, who are seeking to find their place in an Agile development environment. There is no specific Tester role in Scrum - there is just the Team. The Team collectively is responsible for the quality of the delivery, including testing, and so the ‘traditional’ Tester role is redundant. However, this course demonstrates how a Team member specialising in testing can add a great deal of value in the Scrum development process.
