Testing, Testing: Challenging the Way We Approach Upstream and Downstream 

Allan Kelly and Andy Doughty

May 28, 2020

“The aim of testing isn’t to ensure the product is free of defects… it’s knowing when to stop and what to do next”

We’re joined by industry expert Allan Kelly, consultant, coach and author as we ask:

  • How testing for upstream and downstream differs?
  • Why does testing matter to you and your customers?
  • How can testing be aligned to business goals?
  • How do processes and tools allow testing to shift left?

He is the author of seven books including "Continuous Digital", "Little Book of Requirements and User Stories", and his latest "The Art of Agile Product Ownership". He has pioneered techniques such as Value Poker, Time-Value Profiles, and Retrospective Dialogue Sheets.

CRO and co-founder at Virtuoso, Andy believed there was a real opportunity to make a difference to how companies carried out testing through a combination of bold thinking and new technology. He has extensive experience working with companies, helping them improve the way they approach test automation
