QA Integration with Scrum

The process for integrating QA metrics activities into the Sprints requires the systematic inclusion of the following activities in the Sprints backlog:

  • Planning and grooming of the QA metrics related activities
  • Collect metrics input data
  • Calculate the QA metrics
  • Communicate the QA metrics to all the parties involved/stakeholders
  • Analyze QA metrics results and propose actions to improve
  • Analyze the QA metrics effectiveness and act for improvement
  • Document data/archive historical data

The QA metrics calculation and analysis are included in the Sprints definition of the “DONE” criteria.
