Release Testing Is Risk Management Theatre

19th August 2014 in London at Skills Matter

This SkillsCast was filmed at Release Testing Is Risk Management Theatre

Agile methods advocate cross-functional teams responsible for product quality, yet the notion of Release Testing (post-development, end-to-end regression testing) as a risk reduction strategy stubbornly lives on. However, from a Continuous Delivery perspective Release Testing is Risk Management Theatre – a costly practice that delivers little value. Why is this? In this talk, Steve Smith will discuss why Release Testing is an antipattern, and offer an alternative risk reduction strategy
