TUTORIAL: Getting the Test Strategy Right for the Context

This workshop is about exploring where and how testing takes place, what makes the contexts different, and how evaluate the risks and design test strategies around various contexts.  Development of context-driven testing strategies will enhance the valuable testing output, allow to save resources and budget, and pick the right tools to support testing activities.
We will go outside the usual comfort zone of websites facing the public and consumers. Let’s look inside to the development of internal IT systems – “business to employee” systems, and consider how to add value with relevant testing activities. We will look into the engine room of business systems for goods received, billing, bonus calculations, point of sales systems and many other moving parts of companies. 
Testing takes place in many more IT contexts besides software development. Looking into it, even software development is a big area - are we talking about new development, existing code base or perhaps coding into an commercial "shelf" application framework.  Sometimes we even have to test that "everything works as before" when the product is moved to another application maintenance vendor.
In this workshop we will look into the various ways to approach testing in the larger IT landscape.

Key takeaways:
  • A look into the engine room of IT systems to support the enterprise
  • Discovering the principles of context-driven testing and exploratory testing
  • Learning how to develop test strategies for different contexts
  • An eye opener and stepping stone to advance your testing to new areas
