If automation is not happening within the same sprint, who is at fault?

We testers immediately feel that’s somehow our fault – whereas in 90% of the cases I’ve seen it’s not.

I spoke about this yesterday, and some folks were not confident about this being practical (https://lnkd.in/en8GqEp)

Automating within the same sprint is the ideal world every team should target towards

However if that’s not happening (and mostly it doesn’t), that speaks more towards the ways of working of the organization and team instead of tester’s skills

The first step towards this is ‘commitment from management’ to treat automation equally important to developing the feature.

As long as we treat automation as an after thought, there is no way this (aka in-sprint automation) can become a reality – And this is most definitely not a testers issue!
