Session-based test management
(SBTM)Session-based test management (SBTM) involves
• Creating test charters for a testing idea
• Exploring uninterrupted for a specific time period
• 20 - 60 minutes
• Recording the results
• Following up with a debriefing session.
Mindmap/Thread-based test management
It works on the idea of organizing tests around threads of activity, rather
than test sessions.
• Allows you to track progress
• Review completed coverage
• An opportunity to peer review and Positive feedback
• An opportunity to review your own charters or results
• Reporting to management
