Full Course Outline
Most projects, being either sequential or iterative (Agile), implicitly use some kind of risk-based approach for prioritizing testing activities. Critical testing decisions should be based on a thorough product risk assessment process with key business drivers as the foundation. PRISMA (PRoduct RISk MAnagement), a practical method for performing systematic product risk assessments, is presented. During this 1 day practical course, it is explained how to carry out risk identification and analysis, and how to use the outcome to select the most appropriate test approach to mitigate the risk. Learn how to apply risk-based testing in both traditional and Agile projects, including how to create an Agile sprint “test plan”. Practical experiences are shared, problems overcome and results observed employing product risk assessments. Learn how to set testing priorities and optimize your test effort by including product risk assessment in your testing practices. Develop a practical approach to inform project stakeholders about important testing decisions and provide clear visibility on product risk status.
