Description:
We are well aware that agile team members shy away from standardised training and exams as they seem to be opposing the agile philosophy. However, agile projects are no free agents; they need structure and discipline as well as a common language and methods. Since the individuals in a team are the key element of agile projects, they heavily rely on a consensus on their daily work methods to be successful. All the above was considered during the long and careful process of developing a certification framework that is agile and not static. The exam to certify the tester also had to capture the essential skills for agile cooperation. Clearly no simple multiple choice test would be able to show the examinee’s soft skills. Hence a whole new approach was developed together with the experienced input of a number of renowned industry partners
