Why Would You Want To Automate a Test?

Why would you automate a test? What benefits do we get with test automation?

Quite often when people get involved in automated testing, their main focus shifts from designing good tests to ensuring that the automated code can actually execute and run the test.

During the sprint when team members are under pressure to deliver the stories in a limited time frame, there is usually not enough time to test all the planned scenarios, let alone writing automated test scripts to test the new functionality.

We can get bogged down with the details of the work, coding, reviewing, executing and forget about the main reason why we actually automate a test!
