Description

Structured Exploratory Testing

Session-Based Test Management makes exploratory testing intangibles more tangible. It can be thought of as structured exploratory testing, which may seem like a contradiction-in-terms, but "structure" does not mean the testing is pre-scripted. It means we have a set of expectations for what kind of work will be done and how it will be reported.

Session-Based Test Management is a way to organize exploratory testing, as well as to apply basic measurements to it. It’s based on the idea of a “session.” Test sessions are standard-length uninterrupted time boxes during which we test.

SBTM is a systematic approach to documenting and estimating testing. This class walks you through all the essentials of how to apply SBTM (and also its cousin: Thread-Based Test Management).

Target audience

Who should attend this training?

This workshop is for people who test software or have to deal with it every day. It is particularly valuable for testers who deal with products that have to be tested with limited information and time available. The workshop is instructive for anyone, new or experienced in the testing profession. Session based test management fits perfect in an agile environment but is also very useful in more traditional ways of working.
