The ISTQB® is developing a new Agile Advanced Level Product – Agile Test Leadership at Scale (ATLaS) as part of the Agile Stream (the stream currently includes the Certified Tester Foundation Level Agile Tester and Certified Tester Advanced Level Agile Technical Tester).

The product is being developed incrementally – the first 2 chapters (of 5 currently planned in total) are now released into the public domain with the hope that feedback will help to hone the product before the certification as a final product is released and also to give stakeholders, including training providers, the opportunity to consider some initial development and to communicate with their markets.
