We all consider risk as part of our everyday lives – when we cross the road, when we change jobs, and even when we choose a partner. Software is no different - risk is used as one of the main drivers for both project management and test management – with limited resources we use our knowledge of risks to prioritise our testing and ensure this testing is aligned with business risks.
Risk-based testing (RBT) has been around in various forms for over 20 years, and accepted as a mainstream approach for over half that time,now being an integral part of popular certification schemes, such as ISTQB,and the basis of the ISO/IEC/IEEE 29119 international software testing standards, which explicitly require that risk be used as the main driver for a project’s test strategy. In this way testing is used to treat perceived risks, such as by choosing which test phases to use and which test techniques to apply.
Despite its long history, being required by standards, and the fact that RBT is not a complex approach in theory, it is still rare to see RBT being applied as successfully as it could be.
This workshop introduces the key concepts behind risk management and how it should be applied to testing. The three basic stages of risk identification, risk assessment and risk mitigation are considered and practiced by workshop attendees in terms of the management of testing, both during project development, after the delivery of the software into use and (very effectively) to manage regression testing. This class is highly-practical, with the instructor bringing in experiences from introducing risk-based testing to large corporate clients.
This one day tutor-led class includes slides, exercises and practical work, and uses a hands-on approach based on group exercises and discussions. It is highly-interactive, allowing attendees to learn from the experience of the instructor and each other, and, owing to its interactive nature, each class is restricted to a maximum of 18 delegates.
At the end of the class, participants will:
• understand that risk is fundamental to managing all testing on a project
• be familiar with the three key steps in risk management
• be able to apply risk identification, assessment and mitigation to determine and
prioritise the testing at the individual component level and for the test strategy
for a complete project
• Understand how to implement a successful risk-based strategy for regression testing
The class is intended as an introduction to best practices for those new to risk-based testing and as a refresher for more experienced test professionals, who want to ensure that they are fully aware of current best industry practices. This includes people in roles such as testers, test analysts, test engineers, test consultants, test managers, user acceptance testers and software developers.
There are no formal entry requirements for this class, although prior experience of working on IT projects is certainly beneficial, either as testers, or in a development or management role.
