Join my EXPO:QA Tutorial in Madrid


On 9 June (less than two weeks from now) I will providing my Tutorial on Business and stakeholder needs. You are kindly invited to join me in Madrid.

You wan’t to know what we will be talking about?  On the EuroSTAR TestHuddle I have written column about this topic: Test strategy revisited . The column introduces a three step approach to revamp your test strategy.  In Madrid we will experiment with this approach.

In the practical hands-on workshop participants will boost their understanding of the needs that business has and they will experience how these drive development and testing. We will determine different persona’s for a simple mobile application and investigate what needs these user-groups might be having. Experience learns that this exercise alone, will lead to new test insights.

But we’ll take the tutorial a few steps further. Using qualifiers and disqualifies, participants will execute an alternative risk analysis and discover how its results can be used to drive tests, perform reviews, find early discrepancies in the design and how it can be used to sell you testing to your stakeholders.

How will provide them with the information they want? In the workshop we define test missions and execute them. We will do role-playing to practice our test story. Rather than communicating lists of bugs and passed test cases, we learn to understand the words that resonate with our stakeholders.

More information can be found on the EXPO:QA Website

I hope to see you in Madrid.
