Tutorial Masterclass: Master the Winning Test Strategy and Test Design

Presenter: Anna Royzman

This tutorial is intended to teach you mastering your testing to the point of winning every time. In this class, you will learn how to align your testing tasks with the objectives of your team and stakeholders.


Test Strategy objective #1 is to be relevant: it shall fit the project needs, every day, with every priorities change. That means it must be sophisticated, flexible, adjustable, and lean. This tutorial will teach you how to develop winning testing strategy applicable for all your needs: project to project, release to release, sprint to sprint, story to story.


To succeed in the endeavor, you will need to analyze testing needs for your project stages, get on the same page with stakeholders, understand their quality requirements and earn their trust, define a testing mission based on stakeholder requirements (hidden and explicit), align the testing scope with the project priorities, analyze the risks and develop risk mitigation techniques to execute on your mission.


Main goal of this session -- you can apply acquired skills in your everyday work.


In this class you will learn how to:

  • Design testing strategy aligned with project requirements and risks
  • Design test experiments professionally
  • Identify the need for test automation, test tools, development and support
  • Plan for the exploratory activities (exploring the unknowns), learning curves and people events (things happen)
  • Adjust testing strategy, scope and coverage to align with the changing priorities
  • Maximize the (always) limited resources: time, skills, tools, SMEs
  • Implement latest techniques to plan and prioritize your testing activities
  • Estimate your work and communicate it to your team
