Live Web Seminar
"Delivering Business Value Through Exploratory Testing"

Join us - September 29, 2009
2:00 p.m. ET/11 a.m. PT

Exploratory testing is an often underutilized tool in software quality. Many organizations have trouble incorporating exploratory methods into their test strategy because it is viewed as "unstructured" or difficult to track back to productivity. However, given the complexity of today's systems and the difficultly of defining their expected state, outcomes, and use cases in advance, exploratory testing is a key tool in the software quality arsenal.

In this Web seminar, Michael Bolton and Chad Wathington will discuss how exploratory testing is particularly applicable to delivering business value in agile teams. They'll also cover:

  • How to approach exploratory testing
  • How to free up and structure time to use exploratory methods
  • How to justify moving away from just test cases in your organization
