Agile test plan
      #536790 - 12/07/08 12:00 PM

hi everyone,

I'm from an IEEE829 traditional test plan environment,
but now I need to write an "agile testplan".

Does anyone have a sample I could look at?
I tried googling but, found one link, but the link was broken.

What's the best approach to take?

Thanks,
Laundry

I'd suggest putting in a pre-order for this book and maybe getting yourself a copy of the existing book Testing Extreme Programming

There is this thread on the Yahoo Agile testing mailing list - you might consider joining it if it's something you are going to be doing in the future

agile is a buzzword, it could mean almost anything. Does your new environment has SCRUM, XP, anything? Testplan by the way could also mean different things (not exactly what it mean in IEEE).
So what should your "agile testplan" describe: test scope, roles, methodology, schedule? The biggest concerns with planning tests in agile environment are:
1) Should you have manual testing expert, or all the testing will be done by developers (cross-functional members)
2) If there will be a dedicated tester doing manual testing, will he be working one sprint behind or what?

When I was in situation (probably) like yours (probably because I don't have details of your context), I wrote the following documents http://www.testingreflections.com/node/view/7378

Hi Ainars,

I know this post is very old, but may I ask if you have any new development on this. I am also looking for some sample documents in agile testing like test plans, test cases, closure reports, SCM Plans.

Please let me know if any new development is there on agile documentation that might include some samples to give me some visualization. The link that you gave above is very good and I anticipate that I might use it in my plan. But I still dont have a very clear idea on it.

Also can you point me to some other links that might have samples of the documents in agile

The agile test plan should contain information on where the application will be tested and what the obejetivo this small project, but that's the minimum.
The more information you collect and enter the planning will have better control over the results.
The agile test the planning phase can be documented and formal, using all his knowledge and documents IEEE829.
On this subject I have posted frequently on my blog and shared with the entire community QA, visit http://agiletestbr.blogspot.com.br

Tks

Test plan docs is for waterfall. There is no test plan for agile. It is interesting to see the people looking for test plan for agile

Never?

Not even once in the almost four years since this question was posed?
