Agile Testing

A recent study reports that 70% of organizations have implemented the agile methodology. The number of respondents without a specific approach to agile testing has fallen dramatically from 31% in 2016 to 5% in 2017, and agile testing is reaching greater maturity and development teams are more aware of the implications for testing. – World Quality Report-2017~18
