Session-based Test Management was invented more than 15 years ago and is quite simple to explain: by using charters to direct testing in time boxed and undisturbed chunks (sessions) of work plus debriefing often to build and share knowledge, the value of testing is increasing. Changes are easily taken in and handled, and even if using automation, the basics of SBTM still apply. What is deceivingly simple to explain is however a bit more difficult to get working. So this workshop focuses on just that. We will run through sprints and get the disciplin of writing charters (and the less known but very important disciplin of discarding charters) under our skin. We will build models to guide us, use dashboards to reflect the product status and learn the essentials of the art of debriefing and shortly but precisely tell about our results. All that will be related to agile projects: sprints, planning etc.
Bring your laptop! (Both macs and windows pc's are welcome)
Participants will leave the workshop with tools that can instantly help them in their daily work. They will get an understanding of what testing can do when it is not just reduced to simply rewriting user stories and requirements in test case form. They will learn how to rapidly and confidently examine and analyse a testing problem and provide feedback fast. They will learn how to spread their knowledge in the testing group as well as the project group.
