QUEST 2013 Conference and EXPO Sessions:

Workshop: Exploring the Testing Queue: Integrating Testing Techniques into Kanban

Thursday, April 18, 2013: 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM | Room:

There are many agile methods that can be used to help your development team deliver value. One of the latest is called Kanban, from the Lean manufacturing movement. In this workshop, Eric will lead you through using agile and traditional testing techniques in a Kanban process. You will learn how to create a Kanban board for different teams and situations and how visualizing constraints can help testers and developers deliver finished work faster. Eric will explain why using Kanban to track testing is different than a testing strategy using Scrum or other iterative processes. Learn why a team would use Kanban for their methodology and how the structures within a Kanban board can help testers to continuously improve their craft. You will apply these lessons to a practical Kanban testing solution during this workshop.

  • Understand the Kanban process
  • Learn how to develop a Kanban board for a variety of situations
  • Practice using a Kanban testing solution
