An Agile Test Plan gives your Quality Assurance team the ability to have all high-level scenarios, business requirements and estimates in one place. Ensure that your Test Plan has a proper and simple structure containing business inputs and QA tasks.

It's a good idea to refresh your team's memory on The Agile Manifesto, the 12 principles of which include always putting customers' needs first, making simplicity a high priority and frequently reflecting on continuous improvements.

Overview

Agile methodology is a practice that aids constant iteration of development and testing in the product development process. In this model, development and testing activities are concurrent. This process allows more communication between customers, developers, managers and testers, per educational platform, Guru99. Agile methodology is often compared to the Waterfall methodology (a.k.a. Liner Sequential Life Cycle Model). Both are effective and commonly used, but to see the differences, let's look at the advantages and disadvantages of each, put together by Guru99.

Advantages of the agile model:

  • Agile Model is focused on client processes and requires the client's involvement at every stage of the project completion
  • Agile teams are extremely motivated and self-organized and are likely to provide better results in the end.
  • The agile software development method assures that quality of the development is maintained.
  • In the Agile Model, the process is completely based on incremental progress, which means the client and the team know exactly what is completed and what's not.

Advantages of the waterfall model:

  • It is one of the easiest models to manage. Because of its nature, each phase in the Waterfall Method has specific deliverables and a review process.
  • The Waterfall Model works well for smaller size projects where requirements are easily understandable.
  • The Waterfall Model assures faster delivery of the project.
  • The process and results are well documented in this methodology.
  • This is an easily adaptable method for shifting teams.
  • This project management methodology is beneficial for managing dependencies.

Limitations of the agile model:

  • It is not a good method for small development projects.
  • The Agile Model requires an expert to make important decisions in the meeting.
  • The cost of implementing an agile method is higher compared to other development methodologies.
  • The project can easily go off track if the project manager is not communicating the requirements, asks and needs clearly.

Limitations of the waterfall model:

  • The Waterfall Model is not an ideal model for large size projects.
  • If the requirements are not understood at the beginning, the method is ineffective.
  • The Waterfall Model makes it difficult to make changes in the previous phases.
  • In the Waterfall Model, the testing process starts as soon as the development is completed. Thus, the chances of discovering bugs in the development that are expensive to fix are higher.

Application

A project management app, Planio, offers a comprehensive guide for applying agile methodology to your projects and workflow. Here is what to do, according to Planio:

  • Set your vision with a strategy meeting define a business need or vision that your project is addressing. At the end of the meeting, everybody should be on the same page about why they're doing what needs to be done and what the general strategy is for achieving the end goal.
  • Build your roadmap when the strategy has been validated, the product owner should translate that vision into a product roadmap, which lists out the requirements for your project and a timeframe with approximate milestones and deadlines.
  • Create a release plan create a high-level timetable for the release of the product. "Because agile projects will have multiple releases, you'll want to prioritize the features needed to get you to launch first," the experts say.
  • Plan out your sprints develop team plan "sprints–" short cycles of development in which specific tasks and goals will be carried out.
  • Hold daily stand-ups a daily 15-minute stand-up meeting should help you and your team to discuss what was completed yesterday; what are the team members working on today; and whether there are any obstacles that are getting in the way of meeting the deadlines.
  • Review analyze and review what was done and show this off to people on your team and any key stakeholders. The goal here is to check your initial plan to make sure that all requirements were met.
  • Decide what to focus on in your sprint retrospective for agile project management to be successful, clear next steps must be identified in each phase. This means that as soon as one sprint has been completed and approved, you need to decide and communicate what work gets done next.

Case study

Apple

Apple doesn't participate in Agile, Scrum Process, Lean and Kanban Methodology conferences, as the author of "The Age of Agile," Steve Denning, points out in his article for "Forbes Leadership." And yet, Denning says, Apple is truly agile. In his analyses, Denning relies on Adam Lashinsky's book, "Inside Apple."

In his book, Lashinsky, first of all, confirms that Steve Jobs was the supreme Product Owner in the Scrum terminology. "Apple designed for Steve. It is not an exaggeration. Steve was the user that everything orbited around and was designed for," Lashinsky writes. Also, the Agile Method is all about doing work in small teams, and per Lashinsky, "Apple frequently assigns major projects to small groups. For example, just two engineers wrote the code for converting Apple's Safari browser for the iPad, a massive undertaking."

Furthermore, the notion of responsibility, a key Agile value, is enshrined at Apple in a company acronym, the DRI. DRI stands for "Directly Responsible Individual," and describes the person on any given assignment who will be called on the carpet if something isn't done right. Apple teams also work in short, iterative cycles; don't have middle managers; and are encouraged to do great work rather than to save money, which are all signs of solid agile organization, Denning concludes."
