Most projects are struggling to define an approach when it comes to performance testing. However, performance matters! There are many examples of companies who have suffered from performance issues and have felt the impact on their brand, reputation and/or revenue. 

Where do we stand with performance testing in agile projects? Where we have embedded disciplines like development, analysis, functional testing in our agile projects, we are definitely not yet there for performance testing.

There are some obstacles below the iceberg, which block us from embracing and integrating performance testing like we should have to do. This presentation zooms in on three obstacles: non-functional requirements, planning and team organization. For each problem the challenges are described and experience based solutions are given to tackle them. As result, everyone working in an agile context will have the handles to start with performance testing and avoid a Titanic scenario.
