Strategies for Effective Software Testing Seminar
Strategies to help you improve quality and reduce testing time and cost

Duration: Half-day

Target Audience: Testers, Project Managers, Lead Software Designers & Developers,  Business Analysts

Software Testing can consume about 40-50% of the software development time and effort, but frequently it is done without a conscious test strategy. A deliberate, well-planned test strategy can be more cost-effective, and can focus on the risks for the new product or new release. The result is to allocate your test time and effort so that it will have the most benefit and payback.

This seminar is designed to show what should be included in a deliberate, well-planned test strategy and how that can help reduce risks for a new product or a new release.  New approaches to optimizing the test process, as well as an approach to assessing the level of your current testing process are examined.
