ISQI Certified Agile Tester



In today's IT world, Agile development is becoming ever more popular. Agile has some clear benefits such as promoting teamwork, communication and process adaptability throughout the life-cycle of the project, but at the same time it also puts a high demand on soft skills, technical skills and shared ownership.

The biggest challenge for (traditional) software testers is their ability to adapt their traditionally structured approach to support intense team collaboration and fast-moving, highly adaptable targets. Is there still time to apply structured testing methods or follow traditional procedures while working in an Agile environment?

This course (in collaboration with ps-testware and SQI) will give you insight in how testers can apply their testing expertise and contribute to the success of a winning Agile development team.
