How To Build A Regression Checking Strategy with Mark Winteringham

Building a successful regression checking strategy (or an automated regression testing strategy as it’s more commonly known) is hard, but it doesn't have to be. To avoid common mistakes of brittle checks, bad choices in checking tools and wasted time fixing broken checks, we need to take a step back and ask ourselves why we are running these checks and what risks are we are mitigating?

In this masterclass, Mark Winteringham shares his experiences of how to write an effective checking strategy that can answer these questions and in return help us to deliver a series of useful checking frameworks that assist our teams in a meaningful way.

Come to see what has been achieved after 18 months of work, and discuss about the results.


  • Why it's important to build your own automation model rather than rely on others.
  • How to let project and product risk guide what to automate rather than tools.
  • How to implement your strategy as a team and not individually.
