Help! I Am Drowning in Two-Week Sprints...Please Tell Me What NOT to Test!

Mary hears it all the time, testers complaining at retrospectives to their teams that they do not have enough time to test everything. She often sees testers work overtime the last week of a sprint to ensure the definition of done is accomplished. Why do they do this? Why do we as testers enable the bad behaviors of “Scrummerfall” or a lack of whole team ownership of quality?

Her quest in this session is to arm testers with techniques that will allow them to test smarter and not harder and to enable the testers and the team to have better conversations that make it clear on what they are testing in the sprint. Most importantly, Mary wants you to come out of the session being able to answer the question “What are you NOT going to test this sprint?”.
