The Test Strategist's Toolkit
What is "The Test Strategist's Toolkit"?
A strategy helps you decide what to plan, and how to plan it. Testing is hampered by reactiveness and rapidly-obsolete plans - but responds well to a strategic approach. This course looks at the strengths and advantages of a clear test strategy, the role of the test strategist, and the strategic value of testing.
Topics covered include standards and templates, cost and value of various test techniques, pitfalls and strengths of typical strategic drivers, communication, information, and dealing with change.
Workshops are discussion led and tutorials are exercise-based.
This full day course involves plenty of discussion and directly relevant practical exercises; participants are challenged to be both agile and rigourous, and to find ways of directly applying the skills and insights presented.
Who is James Lyndsay?
James is Principal Consultant at Workroom Productions and has been testing since 1986, and has worked independently since setting up Workroom Productions in 1994 - a company offering a range of focused training, covering practical areas of high value that are not typically addressed in certification-based exams.
As a consultant, he's worked in a variety of businesses and project styles; from retail to telecommunications, from rapidly-evolving internet start-ups to more traditional large-scale enterprise. He's worked to technical requirements for companies that make and sell software, to commercial requirements for companies that buy and use software, and to unexpected requirements everywhere. He's been in and out of agile (and Agile) teams since 2002.
James was an internal irritant to the ISEB exam process for five years, is a regular speaker and occasional teacher, runs LEWT (the London Exploratory Workshop in Testing), has won prizes for his papers and was in the EuroSTAR 2012 Program Committee.
