Agile testing is a relatively new approach to software testing that follows the principles of agile software development as outlined in the Agile Manifesto. A tester on an Agile project will work differently than one working on a traditional project. Testers must understand the values and principles that underpin Agile projects, and how testers are an integral part of a whole-team approach together with developers and business representatives.
The Agile Extension will give the tester the knowledge to be part of agile testing teams and achieve high performance.
