- Learn how to focus on “what really matters”
- Actively identify, listen to, and learn from context drivers
- Create effective decision-making workflows
- Dynamically prioritize testing
- Triage ruthlessly

- Testing tactics which focus efforts when you have no time and limited resources
Testers often work with severe time limits
A cast-in-concrete delivery date looms on your project’s horizon. You have precious little time remaining, and the development team keeps delivering incomplete builds of unstable code. Is this a “death march” project, or can the testing team actually do something useful, or perhaps even save the day? This course reveals principals that can be applied based on successful testing experiences from outrageously turbulent projects.
Real World Strategies
Based on years of experience, your instructor shows how to “triage” testing focus and bug priorities; how to widen the testing net with a rich “variety” of ideas; how to build a dynamic “heap” of tests; how to always know the “last best build”; and how to actively monitor business, technological, and organizational “context” drivers.
Who Should Attend?
Designed for test leads, test managers, and development managers, This course provides examples from real world experiences based on how testers have been able to deliver value in turbulent contexts. The strategies presented can be applied by test, development or project managers. Class activities are used to help delegates identify how the principals might apply in their own organization, project framework or development lifecycle models. If you are looking for effective testing strategies when time is running out, development is late, and change is rampant, this session is for you..
