1 Day Workshop on “Risk Based Testing"
Testing is concerned with two main types of risks:
Product or quality risks are problems that can potentially affect the quality of the product
itself, such as a defect that could cause a system to crash during normal operation.
Project or planning risks, which are problems that can potentially affect overall project
success, such as a staffing shortage that could delay completion of a deliverable.
Not all risks are equal and there are a number of ways to classify the different levels of risk.
The simplest is to look at two factors:
The likelihood of the problem occurring, which depends primarily on technical
considerations, such as the programming languages used and the constraints of a given
The impact of the problem should it occur, which depends primarily on business
considerations, such as the financial impact of system downtime or the amount of lost staff
This is 1 day workshop and would help in practically learning and experiencing the Risk
2 Day Workshop on “Test Estimation"
As a test manager, development manager, or test lead, at the beginning of many projects,
you probably find yourself confronted with the question, “How long will it take—and what
resources do you need—to test this system?” Maybe your boss asked you. Or maybe your boss
just gave you an end date, and you’re wondering if you can actually hit that date. Or maybe
you’re bidding on a project for an important client. Or maybe you are putting together a
proposal for a new in-house project, and the stakeholders for that project need to know how
long the testing will take. No matter what the impetus, it is important to know how to
estimate testing projects.
This one day workshop will teach you basics of test estimation and covers the following
1. Work Breakdown Structure
2. Test Point Estimation
3. Use case based estimation
4. Agile Test Estimation
1 day to 2 day workshop on Test Metrics
