Mark Bentsen, a friend and fellow software QA enthusiast, recently posted on LinkedIn, “The number one reason QA Managers lose their jobs is from failed automation initiatives.

User Acceptance Testing (UAT) Best Practices – The Missing Link in Agile Practices

In Agile, developers, testers and business analysts build a working product through a series of short iterations. At the end of each iteration, the product owner accepts the software as working or not, and the team moves forward to the next iteration. This kind of acceptance is not the same as the User Acceptance Testing (UAT) traditionally done at the end of the development effort (Waterfall) by business users or end users who have the knowledge of the product to check it’s functionality and ensure that it can support them in their daily tasks on the job.UAT is still seen by most as a critical step in assuring quality software and that it meets the needs of end users, however, UAT does not fit neatly into Agile. For those implementing Agile, this often represents a missing link that causes significant pain. In this blog, we discuss how to solve this problem.
