The EXIN TPI NEXT® program looks at how to reduce the cost, decrease required time and improve quality of testing processes. It is based on the Sogeti Test Process Improvement (TPI) model and is designed to support business-driven improvement to testing processes. The TPI model aims to measure the maturity of the testing process and provide a roadmap for improvements.
Sogeti offers a Test Maturity Matrix tool to support the assessment of testing.
EXIN Agile Scrum is the world’s first certification program to combine Agile service management with the Scrum process framework. Scrum is being used by over 70% of Agile teams* which makes this an ideal combination. The advantages of using Agile include increased productivity, improved visibility and being better able to deal with changing priorities. These benefits have led to it being adopted across a wide range of disciplines and organizations and not just in software development.
