Coordinating Your Manual and Automated Testing Efforts

Tesena Fest presentation led by Joel Montvelisky

20. 10. 2022 from 15:30 to 16:00 CET + 10 minutes Q&A

About the Presentation

Most testing and development organizations approach their manual and automated testing efforts independently. What’s more, when you look closer at them, you notice that even within their automation efforts they are using a number of different testing frameworks, running independently and without much thought around coordination, coverage overlaps or functional dependencies. This needs to change! We’re wasting efforts and confusing our stakeholders (& even ourselves) with these dispersed and sometimes seemingly contradictory results. We need an approach to coordinate the planning, designing, execution, and reporting of our complete testing process, to achieve better visibility and make more accurate decisions faster. This can be achieved by implementing the Test Orchestration Methodology. Where each part of the testing process “plays” independently based on its needs and tools, and when grouping them all together, you get a more complete and valuable set of results for your organization, based on the coordinated synergies of the different parts. During the session we will review how to implement and adapt the Orchestration approach to your organization and your process.
