A frequent misperception about agile development is that it requires no planning, because the Agile Manifesto says agile practitioners value responding to change over following a plan. In reality, a good agile team tends to plan more than phased and gated project teams. It’s done in smaller chunks, with enough for what is needed, and it uses fast feedback to learn and adapt. Test planning is the same—small chunks and short feedback loops. As you plan testing, focus on what you need to know now.
