Testing is a craft, but it is also and for many foremost a job. A job you do day in day out, evolving with all the rituals every employee develops over time. These rituals, together with all sorts of other external factors (deadlines, pressure, etc.) often means that we don’t have a formalised test strategy or that we are no longer reconsidering the strategies we set out from the start. Having the right strategy in testing is important to stay as efficient and effective as you can be. One of the hardest things you can ask a Tester is: "What is your current Testing Strategy?".
This workshop wants to reignite your strategic fire by placing you in small groups with your fellow testers. Together you will devise a strategy for a real life product which includes methods, tools and planning. However, just like in reality the context will change, and our strategy must change accordingly to aptly react to that change. The workshop will use the TestSphere cards as a support to spark discussions and for bolstering your strategy.
- You will work as a team to discuss and describe a strategy to tackle a real life case and problem.
- You will work out a proposal to convince your manager which can involve tools, methods and planning.
- You will use TestSphere as a tool to uncover unknown-unknowns and strengthen your strategy.
