Let’s help new agile testers find the road to agility!
This is a call to all agile testers to contribute creating the agile testing manifesto.
Please use comments to let me know what you think of the proposed values and suggest new ones you think should be included.
Agile Testing Manifesto [Draft]
We are uncovering better ways of testing
software by doing it and helping others do it.
Through this work we have come to value:
Delivering value over criticizing
implementation the product (*)
Influencing outcomes over
telling others what’s right and what’s wrong imposing rules (**)
Preventing defects over detecting
and logging them (**)
Listening to people over analysing quality metrics
trade craft over process good practices (**)
That is, while there is value in the items on
the right, we value the items on the left more.
(*) Changes proposed based on further reflection
(**) Changes proposed based on feedback
HELP US: If you are willing to help with the project, we have created a Google group where we are discussing improvements on each of the values and discussing the introduction of new ones. Using the blog comments for this purpose is becoming difficult due to number of comments. If you want to help and have a Google account, let firstname.lastname@example.org know and I will send you a private invite.
