Thousands of hours are wasted every year maintaining poorly written suites of automated tests. Not only do these tests slow teams down, they sap morale, and are a huge time sink. By learning what these seven wastes are teams can avoid much of the dysfunction and waste that comes with most early automation efforts. And instead get to adding value faster by applying a few simple techniques.

Learning Outcomes:
  • How to get your team on the same page when it comes to automated testing
  • How to get testers and developers seeing each other's points-of-view when it comes to writing automated tests
  • How to establish the necessary baseline, culture, language, and rules of thumb around where and when to write different kinds of automated tests
  • How to avoid much of the waste and dysfunction that comes with early automation testing efforts
