EuroSTAR Tutorial: How Do We Test This? Practical Risk Analysis and Test Strategy Skills

Trainers: Huib Shoots & Martijn Langhorst


Are you concerned that your testing is not oriented toward finding the problems that really matter? Do you skip thinking about risks and test strategy because your sprints are too short? Then this tutorial is made for you!

We all know that risk is a central theme in software development and still we struggle to use risk ideas effectively in our work. Risk-based testing means organizing your test strategy around suspected risks. Considering risks helps us to devise a workable strategy. This tutorial is designed to help you to sharpen your strategic thinking skills. We will work in groups using powerful heuristics. We will also work on evaluating context, risk analysis and modelling products. Equipped with these tools, you and your group will do risk analysis and create test strategies on real software. You’ll learn to think critically about the presented analyses and strategies. Collectively we’ll improve our risk analysis and test strategy skills.

This is going to be fast-paced and a lot of fun. Don’t worry if you think you’ve never created a risk analysis or test strategy before. We’ll start nice and easy and we’ll increase the complexity and shorten the timescales.
