I work in a software engineering department consisting of several development teams.
The department is mature in most agile methods except automated testing as we have old manual testers.
We have lots of legacy software which needs to be automatically tested and also we want to auto test new features as part of our definition of done.
My question is, what process would you suggest. This is what I have proposed:
Create user stories for all the legacy features which needs to have automated tests written and put them in the backlog
Include automated testing writing as part of new user stories' definition of done.
There is some resistance as people don't want to automate test all new features.
