Cost reductions and the quest for more efficiency are more evident in today’s business world. It also follows that our testing processes will ultimately be affected. When test techniques and methods for structured testing are introduced, this results in improvements in the production of more consistent and predictable results.
Introducing a risk based approach to testing makes it easier for the business to determine to what extent testing is necessary and most efficient. The resulting Go/No- Go decision process may not be sufficient for all companies so other creative methods need to be investigated. Many management theories speak about “Lean” as being one of the solutions. One of the key steps in using “Lean” is the identification of which steps add value to the customer and which do not. This track will give you information to start using “Lean” within testing and more specifically within test management.
The presenter will also look at Lean Six Sigma as being one of the more popular theories that introduces the concept of “Lean” in combination with obtaining higher quality products. This subject will also be explained in combination with testing and test management. This track will focus on applying Lean Six Sigma techniques to test management processes using practical examples from customer cases. The audience can take home a practical “Lean Test Management” overview which they can apply in their own companies.
This track is especially of interest to business managers, IT managers, QA managers and test managers that are involved in improving the quality of test management processes.
