Session Based Test Management with James Bach

Registration is now closed.

Sign up to our mailing list and we will send you updates on things we are working on (including the announcement of any new courses).


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).

Computers are required, as we will be testing a live website during class.

You will learn:

– Public tools that support SBTM
– How the session debriefings work.
– How to use the breakdown metrics.
– How Thread-Based Test Management works with SBTM.
– How to create test charters.
– How to use sessions to estimate future work.
– How to take testing notes.
