Testing Nightmares and Turnarounds
Randy Rice, CSTE, CSQA, CTFL

It’s good to learn from your own mistakes, but even better to learn from the mistakes of others. Randy Rice presents case studies of testing projects that have gone horribly wrong and the one characteristic they all have in common. Although many of these projects ultimately ended in failure, Randy will present examples where corrective actions were very successful.

You will learn lessons that address test team organization, test environment design, working with software developers, test outsourcing, test tool integration, team building and the importance of strong management leadership in the success of your testing. You will also learn what is needed to turn around testing projects that are headed toward failure and how to become an agent for change. Test team leaders and managers will learn mistakes to avoid and where to focus your efforts in leading test teams to get the best results.

  • Learn how to avoid mistakes in testing projects that can place the entire project at risk
  • Learn how to take corrective actions that have a positive effect on the success of your test team
  • Learn the most critical areas in which to focus your testing efforts to avoid a testing nightmare
