Strategic Testing Master Class

Tutorial E     Start Time : 14:00     End Time : 17:30

We all want to test fast and test smart. As the time available for testing shrinks with continuous integration and frequent or continuous deployment, it becomes ever more critical to think strategically, whether you are testing a single story, an entire application or an integrated suite of applications.

Strategic testing is all about how you make the best use of time and any other resources available to you: to mitigate risks, find important bugs and provide your stakeholders with information that really matters to them about the software.

This tutorial teaches simple yet powerful techniques to decide quickly what, how, and when you and your whole team need to test.

Key Takeaways:

  1. Understanding what product quality means to your key stakeholders in practical terms you can use to direct testing.
  2. Driving out risks, principles, or organisational rules that could direct test priorities or severely constrain testing.
  3. Deciding how to determine testing scope and coverage.
