Approach to Agile in Testing

In my previous post, I talked in brief about “Testing in Agile“. Following the same, here are the approaches that may be followed for testing activities in Agile Framework.
Following the right approach to testing is a crucial factor to incorporate successful testing activities in Agile process. Since the development model is different than traditional methods, the teams need to sit together and finalize a process that best suits their project. Generally, following two approaches may be applied:
       Testing in Same Sprint
This method is like the traditional testing process where the QA team perform their test cases in the same sprint/Module (as per traditional process). Ideally, this should be the right approach to follow. Here, the QA team works on the same user stories as development team and prepare their test cases, perform execution iterations and make sure that the sprint delivers a quality product.
       Sprint lag – Sprint+1: Separate QA and DEV sprints
Since testing itself in Agile has its own challenges and tight deadlines is one of the main risk, most of the times, QA team is left with insufficient time to complete their execution iterations. This may happen due to continuous changing requirements which lead to last minute coding in development phase, deployment delays and many more factors.
To overcome this problem, some teams follow the ‘Sprint lag’ or ‘Sprint+1’ method. In this method, development and QA teams work on different sprints. For example,
Sprint 0:
Development Team – Works on Sprint 0
QA team – Works on test case preparation of Sprint 0
Sprint 1:
Development Team works on
1.    Sprint 1 development items
2.    Sprint 0 bug fixes
QA team works on –
1.    test execution iterations of Sprint 0
2.    test case preparation of Spring 1
Sprint 2:
Development Team works on
3.    Sprint 2 development items
4.    Sprint 1 bug fixes
QA team works on –
3.    test execution iterations of Sprint 1
4.    test case preparation of Spring 2
