Agile Software Quality: One Team, One Approach, Build Quality In (June 2018) – Using a third-party test group to inspect or test quality into your products is both inefficient and wasteful. A better approach is to engineer quality into your products as they are being developed. This two volume publication provides you with a framework, guidance and examples to facilitates your putting this approach into practice. We have also developed a two-day highly successful seminar to help you put the book’s concepts into practice. For more information on our seminars, follow our announcements.

Agile Test Metrics (June 2017) – This technical note provides a shopping list of candidate agile test metrics. These metrics were defined using the “Goal-Question-Metric” paradigm to address the key questions our stakeholders have relative to test progress, completeness and thoroughness. The results associated with using these metrics at the sprint, project or enterprise-level level are discussed along with agile-at-scale project needs. This note is available on our web site at https://www.reifer.com/products or is provided free to our benchmarking service subscribers.
