Delivering high-quality code into production faster, cheaper and more efficiently has always been a primary objective of the software delivery process. Recent initiatives such as Shift Left, where the focus of testing effort is moved upstream closer to business design, has gained widespread popularity and adoption. However, for some organisations there has actually been a reverse trend where the User Acceptance Testing phase has increased in scope and size. How can this be?
