The software industry has invested the substantial effort to improve the quality of its products like ISO, CMMI and TMMI. Although applying of TMMI maturity criteria has a positive impact on product quality, test engineering productivity, and cycle-time effort. But it requires heavy software development processes and large investments in terms of cost and time that medium/small companies do not deal with it. At the same time, agile methods deal with changing requirements and continuous delivery

So that the aim of this paper is to improve the testing process by applying a detailed mapping between TMMI and Scrum practices and verifying this mapping with a study providing empirical evidence of the obtained results. The research has been evaluated on a sample of 2 large-sized TMMI certified companies. In conclusion, the experimental results show the effectiveness of using this integrated approach compared to other existing approaches.
