Beyond Waste: Exploratory Charters in Action

Presented at deliver:Agile 2018
https://deliveragile2018.sched.com/event/DqER/beyond-waste-exploratory-charters-in-action-claire-moss

Think manual testing is waste? Think again! If you're not learning when you're testing, you're doing it wrong! People exploring systems can be your best defense against unknown problems and your greatest way of finding unexpected opportunities.
While automation is well adapted for repeating the same thing over and over again, human beings are great at doing things differently.
Doing is not enough! We need to think during our review and examination processes to improve outcomes. How do we design manual exploration to provide value in today's fast-moving development culture?
Come to this workshop for hands-on experience with the full lifecycle of exploratory testing charters.

Learning Outcomes:
Structuring manual exploratory testing for transparency
Charter guidance during test execution
Outcomes of exploratory testing
Value delivery through debrief of testing session
