comment Fitting regression testing in a Agile/ Scrum development cycle
This is some good advice, you should automate as much as possible. If you get to the end of a sprint and you have to manually testing new features you should add a post-it note to a board somewhere so that you can see when you are building up a manual regression suite, this will help indicate when you need a hardening sprint to reduce the manual testing debt you've acquired of the the previous sprints. Also, have the whole team do some exploratory testing before the end of the sprint, this will catch the fringe cases and usability issues.

I've used this approach, we invested 5800 hours approx. which saved the project team form executed around 28000 hours approx, a total saving of 22200 hours (again approx.)!

Our regression suite is there not to find new bugs but to give us a clear indication that the build is good enough to perform further testing. I think that it is important to have a deterministic regression suite and have another suite for fuzz testing that will try to find new defects.

Priceless is the real answer, however, I it would be nice to know the actual cost.

I've not be asked so much to provide figures, however, I would like to be able to justify this approach on new projects, and like always management talk in savings and cost.
