Exploratory Testing Lab
Testing in your context
Duration : 2-3 days (Can be extended)
Exploratory testing is about making an effective use of our available resources, skills and practical knowledge and about finding as many high severity defects as possible within a certain time limit. It is based on the tester’s skills, knowledge about testing and system at hand, and known testing methods and tools.
Exploratory testing is often integrated in the test strategy together with regular manual testing. As testers, we learn about the system more and more during the project, and additional ‘exploratory tests’ (or heuristics) should be added continuously to our current manual test cases repository.
in this workshop, participants will go from theory into action within a few days, exercising what they have learned in class, on their own test environment and SW product.
Testers, testing team leaders and test managers, that would like to know what is Exploratory Testing, how to plan it, run it, measure it, and improve in doing it.
But not only that – later on, implementing it in their own company, using their own context.
The objectives of this workshop is to give the participants to
- Acquire knowledge on the methodology behind Exploratory Testing
- Run a coached session, implementing Exploratory Testing within your company, using YOUR context
This workshop is from the T&C series of train and coach. It involves a training course in the beginning, followed by a coaching sessions of implementing Exploratory Testing in your company.
The coaching is adjusted to company’s own context and day-to-day, Charter, ET reporting, ET Debriefing.
Participants should have basic testing knowledge about testing life cycle, testing techniques and methods, test measurements.
Note: running ET sessions (days2+3) shall be done on customer’s test environment, testing your own products. Setup of a few test environments for the workshop is necessary.
Note: The current suggested format, supports a small to medium size teams. For a larger group of testers/managers, additional days might be needed.
Also, if the product and project environment are very complex, further days of introduction & planning might be required.
