Add to calendar

Whether you are new to testing or looking for a better way to organize your test practices, understanding risk is essential to successful testing. Lee Copeland describes a general risk-based framework—applicable to any development lifecycle model—to help you make critical testing decisions earlier and with more confidence. Learn how to focus your testing effort, what elements to test, and how to organize test designs and documentation. Review the fundamentals of risk identification, analysis, and the role that testing plays in risk mitigation. Develop an inventory of test objectives to help prioritize your testing and translate objectives into a concrete strategy for creating tests. Focus your tests on the areas essential to your stakeholders. Executing and assessing test results provide a better understanding of both the effectiveness of your testing and the potential for failure in your software. Take back a proven approach to organize your testing efforts and new ways to add more value to your project and organization.
