This 3-day workshop is aimed at Test Manager’s who want to increase their skills in test estimation, test monitoring and control and measuring the value of testing.

Day 1: Test Estimation

Test Estimation is one of the hardest activities to do well in testing, the main reason is that testing is not an independent activity and often has destabilising dependencies. During this workshop we shall uncover some of the common problems in test estimation, how to overcome them together with 8 ways we can estimate test effort.

Day 2: Test Monitoring and Control

Gathering and presenting clear information about quality—both product and process— may be the most important part of the test manager’s job. Join the trainer as he challenges your current progress reports—probably full of lots of difficult-to-understand numbers—and asks you to replace the reports with a custom Test Manager’s Dashboard containing a series of graphs and charts with clear visual displays.

Day 3: Measuring the value of testing

The cost of quality is often expressed as the following:
The cost of quality – the cost of good quality + the cost of bad quality.
The trainer explains how to measure the cost of good quality and the cost of bad quality to see whether testing provides a good Return On Investment.

Quantifying the Value of Testing Workshop

To get the most from the workshop, it is recommended to attend all 3 days, however it is very flexible allowing you to attend all 3 days or individual days as the topics are separate standalone modules.
