The Agile methodology has become the software development approach of choice for many organizations, and for good reason.
Instead of a waterfall approach that separates testing and evaluation into its own distinct phase, the Agile methodology weaves a range of new principles into the entire software development process. Although this new approach brings more of a focus on the end user experience, faster iterations of development, and the ability to test concepts earlier and more often, the Agile methodology can still present some challenges for Scrum Masters who are responsible for coaching their team through the process.
From planning and evaluating the progress of sprints, to tracking overall progress toward schedule and budget milestones, to managing specific testing requirements, the work of a Scrum Master can add up quickly.
This is why it is vital for organizations to provide their Scrum Masters with an industry-leading test management tool—like TestMonitor—to streamline their workloads, automate traditionally manual tasks, and improve the tracking of testing efforts with intuitive reporting and customizable dashboards.
With TestMonitor, Scrum Masters can do what they do best: coach their teams and remove issues before they bog down progress and slow development.
TestMonitor gives Scrum Masters the features they need to balance both the technical and operational facets of Agile software development, from planning, structuring, and scheduling sprints to managing backlogs and maintaining communications with the scrum team. TestMonitor offers all of these functionalities right out of the box, giving you the tools you need to keep scrums productive, positive, and on track.
One platform to handle all efforts, from end to end.
Every project, sprint, and development team is different, but TestMonitor is flexible enough to handle them all. Whether you are responsible for managing just one development effort or balancing multiple sprints at once, TestMonitor gives Scrum Masters the tools they need to communicate objectives, build out testing schedules, instantly test deliverables from your sprint, and track the status of tasks, releases, and launches—all in one platform.
