I provide bespoke software testing training & coaching through my company Testagility, which helps development teams deliver quality software that actually solves the problem.

I use Agile & Lean principles from a testing perspective to help development teams improve communication in order to achieve closer collaboration, faster feedback & ultimately increased quality.

I predominantly find myself helping development teams improve their Agile testing. This includes testing training as well the soft people skills to help teams grow together.

Do any of these situations sound familiar to you?

Testing is squeezed in at the end of the delivery cycle

How do you test throughout the development cycle to bake quality in?

The wrong thing gets built

You wait for ages & when you finally get to see the requested product, its not what you asked for – how do we know what is the right thing?

Testers see themselves as the gatekeepers of quality

Why should they be responsible for “signing off” software? They didn’t ask for it and they’re not funding it therefore why should they give no/go decision?

Not everyone wants face-to-face conversations

What can we do to help closer collaborations without forcing those who prefer to work alone into situations that make them uncomfortable?

We don’t need Testers, we’re Agile

Yes, your development cycle may be highly automated but there is so much value a Tester can add to your time – let me show you!

How can I help you?

Depending on your challenges, I can offer:

Work or classroom based training
On-the-job coaching
A pair of hands to get the job done
A combination of all of the above
