We have recently published a new Inception process goal, Develop Initial Test Strategy.  The potential need for this goal was identified a little over a year ago by an organization that we were actively working with and since then we have worked with several other organizations where it was also clear that this process goal was needed.

The basic idea is that during the Inception phase the team should consider developing an initial test strategy so as to identify how they will approach verification and validation. This includes thinking about how you intend to staff your team, organize your team, capture your plan, approach testing, approach development/programming, choose a platform for test environment(s) platform, choose a platform equivalency strategy, test non-functional requirements, automate test suites, obtain test data, automate builds, report defects, and govern your quality efforts. The goal diagram is depicted in Figure 1 and the update goals overview for Disciplined Agile Delivery (DAD) is shown in Figure 2.
