How agile is this project?

Press Releases   •   Jun 19, 2012 10:11 BST

Are All Pigs Equal?

Imagine you are offered the opportunity to take up one of two jobs that are similar in all respects, except one is working on a traditional project and the other is working on an agile project. Which one would you take?

One thing is practically certain - most developers would jump at the opportunity to work in an agile environment. But would (or should) a tester?

As a tester one of the first questions you would need to ask is "how agile is this project?" This begs a further question: "

Are there levels of project agility?" An agile purist would point to the agile manifesto (you can find this in the main document) and the associated principles and argue that a true agile project would be aligned with all of these. The reality is that there are very few truly agile projects out there; in practice the label of ‘agile’ seems to be accepted as long as the project develops software incrementally with the delivery of each increment typically taking no longer than 4 weeks. Alignment with the other principles varies dramatically. So the question of ‘how agile?’ is legitimate, but how does level of project agility affect testers? To answer that question you need to understand that a fundamental difference between working on an agile and a traditional project is that an agile team is empowered to make decisions and everyone is jointly responsible for the output of the team.
