The Impact of Testing – By Example

Uhrzeit: 10:00 - 13:00
Vortrag: Mo 7

 

Although the importance of testing and quality engineering is well accepted as a lever for sustainable success at the end of the day these are often the areas that get cut or are the first to skip if money is tight or if time is short. On the one side we could just blame management that they do not understand us, but on the other side we should critically reflect on how we explain the impact of testing to them and how we can improve. To make it happen this tutorial provides practical guidance on the needed strategies and tactics.

Target Audience: Test Managers, Test Engineers, Architects, Developers, Project Leaders, Managers, Decision Makers
Prerequisites: Basic knowledge about testing and quality engineering
Level: Practicing

You will learn:

  • (Better) Understand the impact of testing and quality engineering on the business
  • Learn different approaches, strategies, methods, and techniques to express and explain this impact to different stakeholders
  • Share practical examples, facts, and experiences on how to do it successfully

Extended Abstract:
Although the importance of testing and quality engineering is well accepted as a lever for sustainable success at the end of the day these are often the areas that get cut or are the first to skip if money is tight or if time is short.
On the one side we could just blame management that they do not understand us, but that would be too shortsighted. Rather we have to critically reflect on how we explain the impact of testing to the different stakeholders and how we can improve our communication so that we are more effective in getting our message across.
To make it happen this tutorial provides practical guidance on the needed strategies and tactics:

  • What is the impact of testing and quality engineering on the business?
  • How can we improve our practices to discover, show, express, and explain the impact of testing to different stakeholders?
  • What different approaches, strategies, methods, and techniques do exist that are useful, clear, precise, accurate, concrete, and practical?
  • What are their pro and cons, required preconditions, and key principles?

Attend this tutorial and get not only some good examples on how to better explain the impact of testing but be able to use these practices in your projects as a major lever to secure and sustain your specific high-impact testing and quality engineering approach in your day-to-day project work.
