Several years ago I wanted to transition from Traditional Testing to Agile Testing. My goal was to no longer be a safety net for teams and ensure that the whole team would share responsibility for quality. Throughout this journey I have embraced many concepts, one of the key concepts was the Modern Testing Principles. 
The Modern Testing Principles are 7 key principles, created by Alan Page and Brent Jensen. These principles evolve agile testers to the next level and ensure the whole team embraces quality.

In this talk, I will explain the Modern Testing Principles, share my experiences with the principles and ultimately the benefits that can be achieved through the principles. The Principles have had an enormous positive impact on how I think about Testing and Quality. Before hearing about Modern testing I was already undertaking changes such as no longer being a safety net for the team, embracing lean principles and ensuring the team made data-driven decisions. Embracing Modern Testing accelerated my development to becoming a Modern Tester and ultimately helped improve the quality culture of two teams.

Key Takeaways:
  • An understanding of the 7 Principles of Modern Testing.
  • Why the Principles are not actually modern and in many ways have little to do with Testing, and have more to do with Lean principles.
  • Why some of the Principles may be viewed as controversial and why some Testers may feel threatened by them.  
  • Practical examples of how you can Implement the Modern Testing Principles in your role and team.
