Participant and Course Organizer, Hewlett-Packard
I would highly recommend Janet Gregory and her Agile Testing training course for any agile team. I work at Hewlett-Packard leading Agile process adoption for a large hardware-software project. The team is using the Scaled Agile Framework approach to managing multiple scrum team deliveries for this very large and complicated release. I had Janet come in to train the test leads who are working on various scrum teams. With Janet’s class, our team walked away with very specific tools, visions of what they need to be doing differently, and the confidence to do accomplish these changes. In the 4 months since the class, the team has fully embraced, and are enthusiastically implementing, agile testing methodologies such as automation, acceptance testing, transparency in reporting status, status matrix, zero-defect tolerance practices using “good-enough” standards to name a few of the tools and practices learned through Janet’s class.

I first met Janet when she kindly volunteered to present to our team at Paddy Power. Her knowledge of the transition to agile testing practices was immediately apparent and backed by real world experience.
I subsequently engaged with Janet to provide her ‘Whole Team Approach to Agile Testing’ course to the team and was very pleased with the results. The team learned a lot (as did I) and was readily able to apply their learnings. They trusted Janet’s opinion as it was backed with real world examples in which Janet was directly involved. I highly recommend Janet as an Agile Coach, particularly in the area of testing.

“Janet was the change agent that successfully moved the Neteller QA team from being waterfall/adhoc to Agile. Within a 1.5 year timeframe, 7 QA teams were successfully utilizing the Agile methodology. Janet is a dedicated team player who values continuous improvement in all areas of QA. I would gladly work with Janet again in the future.” November 14, 2007.
