My Story of Kanban and Its Positive Impact on Testing - Conor Fitzgerald
A number of years ago I joined a new company as a tester and was part of a new team that was forming. The decision to use Kanban had an enormous influence on how we tested as a team.
My personal story of testing with Kanban includes No split between development and testing – nothing was considered done until it was tested. Everyone became a tester. Supported a quality culture and test coaching “Quality gate” became kanban stages Production issues were prioritised over feature work. How we solved a serious bottleneck in our testing and how it improved overall quality.
