Introduction to Creating Test Strategies

“How should we test this?” is one of the toughest mysteries a practising tester can encounter. To answer this question we need to consider our context and devise a workable strategy. This is a skill that is seldom taught and much of the related literature is weak and uninspiring. To develop this important skill, this short workshop is made where it will sharpen your strategic thinking skills to enable you to create a baseline test strategy for a product in the time it takes to drink a cup of tea. Useful because we often do not have a lot of time.

During this workshop, we will look at factors that influence your test strategy. We will look at fast modelling and using heuristics that enable us to think fast. In the workshop, you will create your own test strategy for a real product. This is going to be fast-paced and a lot of fun. Don’t worry if you think you’ve never created a test strategy before or that you can’t create a solid test strategy within the 99 minutes we have. By the end of the session you’ll be equipped with new ideas to practice creating test strategies in the blink of an eye!

Takeaways

  • Use heuristics to create test strategies
  • Survey and model a product to learn about important factors
  • Improve your thinking skills
  • Create a test strategy fast
