Mette Bruhn-Pedersen

Agile Transformation Leader and Partner at Safe Journey

Mette Bruhn-Pedersen has experience working in testing as a tester, test manager, test lead, and agile transformation coach primarily in the financial sector. She has both used traditional and agile approaches to testing on team level and company level. Since 2014 Mette has helped managers, QA & Test leads, agile teams and business stakeholders on their journey from a team based agile setup to a scaled setup. Following the SAFe Implementation Roadmap and good practices Mette helps define value streams, launch and run Solution and Agile Release Trains. She also conducts training and coaches people on how to transition to new roles and responsibilities.

Based on these experiences and discussions with peers, Mette has co-authored an eBook about Quality and Testing in Scaled Agile Framework for Lean Enterprises, which was published in April 2018. In her spare time Mette promotes software testing in Denmark and world-wide through her engagement in Danish Software Testing Board (DSTB) and ISTQB.

Testing Challenges when Scaling Agile

Scaled Agile Framework® is one of the most popular frameworks used by enterprises to become more agile not just on team level but on all levels.
SAFe® as a framework describes many good practices to build-in quality, but there is still a need for better guidance for people in test departments who work like testers, test analysts, test coordinators, test managers to name a few.
In this presentation, we will take a closer look at the framework from a quality and testing perspective. Mette will share typical challenges related to test planning and execution and ideas on how to address the challenges in SAFe®. Another problem area is how to adapt the test when some of the classical testing roles may disappear as suggested in SAFe®.
