Agile testing is a relatively recent approach to software testing that adheres to the Agile Manifesto’s concepts of agile software development.
On an Agile project, a tester can function in a different way than on a conventional project. Testers must consider the concepts and ideals that underpin Agile projects, as well as how testers, along with developers and business leaders, are an important part of a whole-team strategy.
