Session: Mixup testing, a cross team testing activity between scrum teams

Friday 11.10 - 12.00
Room: Keyboard Cat

There are a lot of benefits with having the testers in the scrum teams working side by side with the developers, and not in a separate test team. However, there are also some negative aspects that can endanger the quality of the work the testers are doing. E.g. by taking part in the design work you easily get biased as a tester and also not as independent as needed. Mixup testing is a cross team testing activity to reduced some of these negative aspects.

In this session I'll talk about why we have implemented the Mixup testing, how we have implemented it and what benefits we have seen from it.
