Add to calendar

What is a test strategy, and how do you develop one? Join Janna Loeffler as she talks through developing a test strategy. She’ll discuss how different software development methodologies influence your test strategy, as well as how techniques like common and coordinated test planning and risk-based testing can be applied to the creation of your test strategy to improve its quality. Janna will also detail how to develop a test strategy when working with different team dynamics; for example, does your test strategy look different for internal teams versus developing a test strategy when working with outside vendors or contractors? Lastly, they’ll uncover how metrics play into your test strategy and what metrics are important to capture and report. You will leave with a better understanding of what a test strategy is and insight into how to develop a test strategy that works for you and your business.
