A Risk-Driven Test Process for any Software Development Lifecycle
Whether you are new to testing or looking for a better way to organize your test practices and processes, understanding risk is essential to successfully testing software in today’s ever-changing world. Dale Perry describes a general risk-based framework—applicable to any development lifecycle model—to help you make critical testing decisions earlier and with more confidence.
The key is deciding how to focus your testing effort, what elements and areas to test, and how to organize test designs and documentation. Learn the fundamentals of risk identification, analysis, and the role testing plays in risk mitigation. Learn how to develop an inventory of test objectives to help prioritize your testing efforts and translate these objectives into a concrete strategy for designing and developing tests. With a prioritized inventory and focused test design and architecture, you will be able to focus your test case creation on those areas essential to your stakeholders.
Execution of the resulting tests and assessing results based on risk-based processes will provide a better understanding of both the effectiveness of your testing and the potential for failure in shipped software. Take back a proven approach to organize your testing efforts and new ways to add more value to your project and organization.
Focuses on the Most Important Testing Issues
In a small-group class setting, your instructor, who is a seasoned testing expert, will help answer your tough testing questions and help you understand how to apply risk-driven testing to your specific situation. You’ll leave equipped with a practical and proven testing approach that you can adapt to your organization, development lifecycle, applications, and project for immediate benefit. As a tester, you’ll be equipped with the tools and skills to attack any testing project—no matter the context or scope.
