2 Day Seminar on Transitioning from


Traditional QA to Agile Testing in SFO


Moving from traditional to agile testing is often a high-wire balancing act to some degree with little clear direction. In this workshop, We will share with you the lessons from teams we observed who have successfully made the transition. We’ll explore the requisite team skills, how to deal with agile requirements, the right strategies for developing agile automation, how to plan and test within your agile team, effective agile test metrics, and aspects of quality for agile teams. The lessons will be shared via real stories from real agile teams who have crossed this road —no hypothetical examples here!

And wrap up the session by sharing the cheat sheet of Agile Testing model to help you define and refine your agile transformation strategies. All in all, you will walk away from this session knowing how to begin your agile transformation or, if you’re already mired in agility, how to raise the bar for increased and sustained performance.
