When Do We Start Testing in Scrum?

When Do We Start Testing in Scrum?
Task Board Indicating Quality Is an After Thought

What does your task board say about your team? Many teams have a separate testing column. This indicates that we are still doing hand-offs from development to testing and that testing is an afterthought. Testing is not a phase that happens at the end of a project and it’s not a phase that happens at the end of a sprint or at the end of a story. Testing is an ongoing activity that happens throughout and there is no distinction between programming or coding and testing. It’s just quality development. It’s about building quality-in instead of checking for quality later. So that’s why testing starts from day one.
