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.
