Fault injection / mutation testing is among the things I miss from the old waterfall days.
More on fault injection in my talk at QA&TEST conference this month end.
In waterfall days it was okay to spend time on improving testing and coming up with better testing techniques.
After the agile apocalypse, many teams found excuses to get away with perfecting their craft under the inaccurate pretense of urgency.
In my understanding, agile never meant not to get half cooked stuff out of the door, in fact quite the opposite, important activities should be part of the Definition of Done.
The only difference was to break a big project into very small deliverable.
So essentially all the good practices from before should continue, just implement in bite sized pieces.
Fault injection is one of those practices.
