The important take aways are to not be too loose nor too rigid with the practice; to accept change as it happens but to not force change too rapidly; to honor the purposes of the components of agile practices; and, above all, to find what works for your team specifically over what you read in a book.

Topics mentioned include the Agile Manifesto and the books "Agile Project Management and Extreme Programming Explained.

Elephant in the Room Podcast:
Episode #004: Testing Resistance
Nov 26, 2013 @ 09:23:13

The Elephant in the Room podcast has released their latest episode - Episode #4, "Testing Resistance":

In this episode, Konstantin and Mathias discuss some of the reasons team have trouble getting started with testing. We talk about how frameworks, and especially their documentation, do little to make it easier. But we are to blame as well: the Conference speakers, bloggers, and community leaders, talk about Quality Assurance, but we are inadvertently creating barriers. Instead of helping people, often we make it harder for them to admit to not knowing how to properly test. We discuss the need for finding the smallest testable units, and how kata’s can help you get familiar with the tools. Finally, Everzet gives you some homework.

You can listen to this latest podcast either via the in-page player or by downloading the mp3 for listening offline. If you like what you hear, be sure to subscribe to their feed to get the latest.
