#TestCulture πŸ¦… Episode 35 – Variability assumption

This 3️⃣rd principle in SAFe is the first to address the idea of agility, where expectations can change up to the last moment. It is the direct impact of the second #agile principle described in the manifesto:
β€œWelcome changes in requirements, even late in the project”.
This assumption implies in particular:
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ not going too far in the ideation to avoid having to start all over again in case of a change in the needs direction
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ minimal code so as not to have to throw away too much work
πŸ‘‰πŸΌ document in detail only the parts that are fixed
Application to test maturity ⬇️
The test should also be designed in the most flexible way possible, for example:
πŸ’­ Using intent-based scenarios, e.g. by a briefly described test objective in order to avoid implementation variants
πŸ’­ By doing exploratory testing
