Speed-testing Using Mind-maps

Lena
99 Minute Workshop
Lena Wiberg

In contrast to ad hoc or “intuitive” testing, Exploratory Testing expects us as professionals to have a systematic approach to testing. Structure and processes tend to be regarded as impediments to momentum, and when time is limited we start cutting corners. Cutting corners risks leaving us with a feeling of not being in control and bugs start slipping through cracks. This need not be the case. You can learn how to plan, test, adapt and report with minimal time by using visual models. In this hands-on Exploratory Testing session we will be using mind mapping techniques for planning, executing and reporting our results.

  • Reviewing requirements (provided as a fictional business scenario)
  • Planning, prioritizing and re-prioritizing your work. Hands-on testing the actual web application and drawing conclusions
  • Adapting to the unexpected
  • Summarizing your findings and recommendations for further work in a concise and useful manner

Participants will be working in small groups and will be provided with an Exploratory Testing template for the workshop. No previous experience with mind mapping is required. Having some familiarity with Exploratory Testing is helpful, but not a necessity.
