Purposeful Test Strategy and Planning Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Purposeful test strategy and planning A HBT Series Workshop www.cleansoft.in
  • 2. If you know where you want to be, the roadshows up. This workshop takes a scientific approach to devising strategy and formulating a plan. Strategy is about identifying the quality levels, test types, test techniques & execution process models to ensure that the potential defect types hypothesized can be indeed be detected optimally.Copyright 2011, CleanSoft Academy.

  • 3. What type of fishes, where to catch, what kindof net, at which level & technology aids...Purposeful strategy is about identifying the specific types of tests neededto uncover specific types of defects at each stage of development andthen choosing appropriate techniques & execution process model so thatwe are optimal and effective.This is about casting the net in the right direction, with the net being theright size and material such that the fishes can be indeed caught. It isequally important to devise measures to enable us assess if we are in theright direction to aid rapid course correction(s) as needed.Copyright 2011, CleanSoft Academy.

  • 4. “Purposeful strategy and planning”is Powered by HBTHypothesis Based Testing (HBT) is a personal scientific test methodology powered by the defectdetection technology STEMTM to deliver clean software. It consists of six stages, with the first twostages focused on “Understanding expectations” and “Understanding context”.The third stage is about “Devising proof” that includes test strategy formulation andeffort estimation. This stage is powered by the “Test strategy & planning” and“Visibility”disciplines of STEM.The scientific concepts “Orthogonality principle” and “Quality growth principle”,“Tooling” needs assessment” of STEM are useful to formulate the strategy.The discipline of “Tooling” allows the good principles of development to identify toolingneeds for implementing the strategy.The discipline of “Visibility” allows us to devisemeasures/metrics that are indeed goal-focused.These two disciplines of thinking enable one to enable think scientifically to develop apurposeful strategy and estimate effort rationally. Also they help you to devise measure to stay oncourse.STEM (STAG Test Engineering Method) is the trademark of STAG Software Pvt. Ltd.Copyright 2011, CleanSoft Academy.

  • 5. Topics Covered in this workshop‣Difference between strategy and plan‣Goal focused strategy - what does this involve?‣Information requiremed for formulating a strategy‣How strategy impacts the various stages of test lifecycle?‣The Orthogonality principle‣Contents of a purposeful strategy‣Metrics to track the progress of implementation of the strategy‣Adapting to changing needs - evolution of strategy‣Metrics to guide the strategy‣GQM - A goal focused approach to devising metricsCopyright 2011, CleanSoft Academy.

  • 6. Takeaways from the workshop The participants will be able to develop the test strategy by applying a scientific goal-focused approach. They will be able to create a purposeful strategy, that they can reason about , thereby taking the mystery/fluff out of a typical test strategy. They will be able to identify metrics that enable them to light up the way.Copyright 2011, CleanSoft Academy. All rights reserved. “Rapid understanding of customer expectations” Powered by HBT
  • 7. DELIVERY STYLE The delivery style will be application oriented, with an application used to illustrate the concepts and the process of doing.
