Course Outline

A one day hands-on workshop that teaches how to use a visual framework to improve all areas of testing from test planning and estimating to test execution and reporting.


Technology is changing all the time causing more and more complex problems needing innovative and creative skills to solve them. As testers we work in this complex technical environment and we must also help solve complex software testing problems.

Although everyone is naturally creative it can be hard to develop those skills. It can even feel scary.

This easy to follow and interactive Visual Testing workshop will help you be more creative in a relaxed setting and will provide a whole new way of looking at testing problems and ideas. The hands-on workshop will demonstrate how thinking with images can help testers and test managers discover and develop new ideas, solve problems in unexpected ways, and improve their ability to share their insights with others.

Drawing on from ‘The Back of the Napkin’ by Dan Roam, Andy will show how to clarify a problem or sell an idea by visually breaking it down using a set of visualisation tools.

Learning objectives

  • Improve test planning and test design with visual aids like mind maps
  • Develop models to gain a deeper understanding of complex technologies and boost test ideas
  • Apply and enhance user scenario testing using a creative approach
  • Track and manage testing progress with simple but effective dashboards
  • Improve communication of testing activities to people that matter with visual images and tools

Target Audience

No drawing skills are required to attend this workshop! Both testing and non-testing roles in software development will benefit in attending this workshop as all the exercise and discussions will revolve around developing and communication ideas about software.
