Agile and testing

For the Bits & Chips magazine I wrote an article in which I describe three different test teams. All three are working in an Agile environment and all three teams experience their work in a different manner. In this article I focus on the documentation. Should it be finalized before the sprint? Should we not expect that the true behavior of the system is determined during the sprint. That is where the adaptively comes from, right? But how are these additional choices documented, how much time do the testers loose in trying to find out what to test? Different teams have different opinions and strive for different solutions.

Want to know more: read the column: I rather have a good design than a detailed testcase (in dutch)
